A court proceeding on a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge against Arizona Attorney Tom Horne is being postponed again and his lawyer says he is trying to reach a settlement with prosecutors.

Horne’s attorney requested and obtained a second one-month delay in a pretrial conference that was scheduled Monday in Phoenix Municipal Court.

Michael Kimerer’s request says he needs more time to evaluate the evidence and interview “critical witnesses.” He also wrote in a Dec. 13 motion he is having ongoing settlement communications with city prosecutors he hopes lead to a resolution.

Horne is accused of not leaving a note after FBI agents saw him tap another vehicle while driving a borrowed car earlier this year.

Horne says he didn’t think the other vehicle was damaged. He has pleaded not guilty.

    Tom Horne’s Hearings Rescheduled: Will the AG Beat the Rap?

    “Will Horne beat the rap? Well, this is Arizona…

    Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne’s corruption is blatant, in your face, unrepentant.

    Yet, given the machinations of Horne’s lawyers, who are battling both Horne’s misdemeanor fender-bender charge with the City of Phoenix, and the civil, campaign finance law complaint brought by Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, I suspect he will escape all but the mildest of sanctions.

    Hearings in both cases recently have been rescheduled. Last week, Horne’s attorney Michael Kimerer asked for the postponement of a pre-trial hearing in the Horne hit-and-run case set for Monday in Phoenix Municipal Court. Horne has pleaded not guilty in the case.” (excerpt)
