Court of Appeals Gives Kari Lake Great News on Her Election Case

Published on

The Court of Appeals of Arizona has granted Republican Kari Lake a procedural win in her lawsuit challenging the results of the 2022 governor’s race.

Lake lost the election to incumbent Democrat Katie Hobbs, who has already assumed office.

Lake has maintained, however, that there were a number of election irregularities focused in Maricopa County, including printing issues that led to the rejection of several votes and long queues at voting stations. In response, she has filed a lawsuit to have a fresh election held in the county.

According to the Arizona Daily Star, the court issued an order on Tuesday agreeing to conduct the complaint as a special action, as sought by Lake’s legal team.

“Our appeal was accepted on its merits. Which means, contrary to what @katiehobbs & her Pravda media say, the Court recognizes this lawsuit has value. Our evidence will be given due consideration before the court. That scares the hell out of Hobbs & Company. It should,” Lake tweeted.

Hobbs’s attorneys have until Tuesday to present their case against Lake.

On February 1, the three-judge panel will hear Lake’s case.

According to Newsweek, the trial was initially slated to take place in March.

In a tweet to her fans, Lake said, “Do not underestimate @KariLake’s desire to get justice for the people of Arizona. It doesn’t matter how long it takes. She will see this through.”

According to the Daily Star, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson rejected Lake’s assertions that the printer troubles were part of a planned strategy to reduce the number of Republicans who voted that day.

Lake asserted that Maricopa County did not adhere to ballot chain-of-custody regulations and that the signatures on the envelopes holding early ballots did not match those on file.

At one point, Lake wanted to leapfrog over the appellate court and take her case directly to Arizona’s state Supreme Court, but the higher court rejected her request.

In a legal filing, the GOP candidate’s attorneys wrote that the evidence put forward at trial proved that Maricopa County officials “caused the chaos arising at nearly two-thirds of Maricopa’s 223 vote centers [on Election Day], admitted after first denying, the illegally misconfigured ballots were injected into the election, causing tabulators to rejects tens of thousands of ballots, disproportionately targeting Republican voters.”
