Arizona high court to hear arguments on Tucson cases

The Arizona Supreme Court on Tuesday is taking one its regular “road trips” to hear arguments in cases at a location site other than the court’s own courtroom in downtown Phoenix.

But the justices aren’t going far this time. They’re scheduled to hear arguments on two Tucson-related cases at Thunderbird School of Global Management in Glendale, a Phoenix suburb.

One of the cases involves the constitutionality of a 2009 state law that forbids Tucson from holding partisan city elections.

The second case stems from a lawsuit over injuries suffered by a wheel-chair passenger while riding in a SunTran bus. At issue is what legal standard of care the bus company had to provide.
