The attorney-discipline case against former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas and two of his former deputies will be heard in September and October.

Presiding Disciplinary Judge William O’Neil didn’t set a specific date for the start of the hearing, but told attorneys in the case to be prepared to go forward with the hearing during those months.

Thomas is accused of basing a lawsuit and criminal investigations of county officials on his animosity toward them.

Thomas says he was trying to root out corruption.

If Thomas is found to have violated the professional rules of conduct, he could face a wide range of punishments, including an informal reprimand, censure, suspension or disbarment.
