Arizona court declines to hear election money case

Arizona court declines to hear election money case The Arizona Supreme Court is declining to consider a lawsuit aiming to block an increase in state campaign-contribution limits.

The justices without comment on Tuesday turned away the special-action suit filed last week by the Citizens Clean Elections Commission, commissioner Louis Hoffman, the Arizona Advocacy Network and Democratic state Rep. Victoria Steele.

The plaintiffs can start over by filing the lawsuit anew with a lower court.

They said state lawmakers were wrong to raise campaign-contribution limits by up to 10 times the current caps without asking voters to approve the move.

Legislators who favored the bill argued Arizona’s contribution limits are too low.
