Complaint dismissed vs Maricopa County official

A judge has dismissed a complaint against Maricopa County’s superintendent of schools over a vacant board seat.

Superintendent Donald Covey was accused of illegally cancelling a special election to fill a vacant board seat on the Peoria Unified School District.

The complaint was filed on behalf of Peoria resident Peter Pingerelli, who was seeking to run for the open seat.

Pingerelli’s complaint also named Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery in an effort to compel him to file suit against Covey and force him to conduct the special election.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John R. Hannah dismissed the complaint Wednesday.
