The Arizona Supreme Court handed down an additional order on Wednesday, sending a major portion of Kari Lake’s election case back to the trial court for some further examination.
Kari Lake Has Exciting News
The Arizona Supreme Court turned down Kari Lake’s application to hear her lawsuit challenging her defeat in the governor’s race last year, on Wednesday.
Lake’s false allegation said more than 35,000 undocumented ballots that were approved served as the foundation for the complaint, according to the court.
Nevertheless, the justices kept one portion of her complaint alive on Wednesday by directing a trial judge in Maricopa County to conduct an extra assessment of that county’s processes for verifying signatures on mail-in votes.
The judgment stated it is ordered to refuse reconsideration of issues from one to five and seven.
The Court of Appeals appropriately handled these matters, most of which had been the topic of evidentiary processes in the trial court. The petitioner’s arguments on these points are not enough to back up the desired remedy under Arizona law or federal law.
Problem number six asks if the committee made an error in rejecting the signature-verification allegation on laches, mischaracterizing Lake’s complaint as a contest to existing signature verification rules; whereas Lake, in fact, asserted that Maricopa County did not comply with this.
Illegal Ballots Investigated
As the Gateway Pundit initially disclosed, Kari Lake’s lawsuit proceeded to trial in the Maricopa County Superior Court. This happened amid concerns regarding the lost ballot chain of custody and Election Day equipment problems.
The issues relating to illegal mail-in ballots and identity authentication were dismissed and were not presented in the trial. Lake naturally alluded to the “big news” on Twitter previously this evening.
I just got some big news.
