In an Order released this morning, the Arizona Supreme Court denied the Cyber Ninjas' latest appeal in its attempt to not turn over public records related to the election "audit" it was hired by the Arizona State Senate to conduct last year. This is in the public records case brought by the Arizona Republic.
Without noted dissent, the Court denied the Ninjas' effort as either a Special Action or a more common Petition for Review. However, the order notes that the Cyber Ninjas may still raise their issues "when the case before the superior court is final." (In other words, without prejudice.)
An Order To Show Cause Hearing is set for tomorrow morning in Superior Court, at which time Judge John Hannah could hold the Ninjas in contempt for not complying with the court's orders regarding the records.
