AZ high court urged to accept Pearce recall case

Lawyers fighting over the recall election for Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce say they need the case decided within a month.

A joint petition to have the case transferred to the state Supreme Court from the Court of Appeals says Sept. 23 is the last date to print ballots to get them to military and overseas voters in time for the Nov. 8 election.

A Pearce supporter’s lawyer is appealing a trial judge’s ruling against a challenge to holding the recall election.

The joint petition urges the high court to accept the case now to avoid delaying resolution of the case until after the ballot printing deadline.
