BREAKING: Judge Rules Subpoenas From State Senate Republicans Is "Enforceable", But Enforcement For November Election Materials Is Up To Them

Judge Thomason: "The courts should generally be hesitant to enter the fray of political disputes between two other branches of government. The controversy between the Senators and the County is a highly charged political dispute.3 Serious accusations have been made and emotions are raw."

Reaction from Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chair Jack Sellers (R-Dist.1): "Judge Thomason's ruling brings much-needed clarity to whether Senate subpoenas apply to ballots that, per state law, must be kept private following an election.   We respect his ruling and will review it with our attorneys as we determine how best to move forward."
