A former Maricopa County prosecutor disbarred for her role in pushing three failed investigations of public officials in court is seeking an immediate stay.

Lawyers for Lisa Aubuchon say she’s entitled to an appeal before the Arizona Supreme Court.

A motion filed Wednesday asks the high court’s presiding disciplinary judge to delay Aubuchon’s punishment so she can continue to practice law pending a decision on her appeal.

Aubuchon and ex-County Attorney Andrew Thomas were disbarred April 10 by a disciplinary panel for ethical misconduct over a years-long battle with Maricopa County officials.

The panel found Aubuchon and Thomas had broken criminal intimidation and perjury laws in knowingly bringing false bribery charges against a judge.

Thomas has maintained that he was trying to root out corruption in pursuing the three cases.
