Arizona Supreme Court to weigh transfer of Pearce recall case

The appeal of a judge’s ruling against a challenge to holding the recall election was filed with the mid-level Court of Appeals.

Bu the sides in the case are both asking the Supreme Court to take the case now so that it can be decided in time to avoid any interruption in the election process.

The justices will consider the transfer request during a regularly scheduled closed-door conference when they decide whether to accept cases.
