The precedent has no “apples to apples” comparison, said court spokeswoman Jennifer Liewer, who added the inter-county friction presents a “pretty unique situation.” Berch’s two-page administrative order gives McGregor authority to assign the county-related lawsuits to judges of her choosing, including judges in any Arizona county, Liewer said.
