Former Maricopa County prosecutor Lisa Aubuchon has filed an appeal of her termination in Superior Court.
Aubuchon was fired last September for her role in failed government corruption investigations pushed by former County Attorney Andrew Thomas and former Sheriff’s Chief Deputy David Hendershott.
She claims the investigators who gathered evidence against her and the hearing officer who presided over her case had conflicts of interest because they were hired by the county.
The Arizona Republic says the county is paying for an attorney in Aubuchon’s legal fight against the State Bar of Arizona, which has initiated ethics hearings against her.
Last month, the Maricopa County Merit System Commission upheld her firing.
Aubuchon’s next option was to appeal to Maricopa County Superior Court.
