BREAKING: Superior Court Judge DISMISSES Challenges Against Biggs/Gosar/Finchem (READ Opinion)

Update, 4/25 6pm: The Supreme Court has set a briefing schedule for both sides, and they will decide the appeal next week. Attorneys Alex Kolodin, Jack Wilenchik and Kory Langhofer will have to work together to file a consolidated opening brief by Wednesday evening. The Response is due on Saturday and the Reply by Monday. There will be no oral argument. 

This is standard operating procedure for these expedited election appeals, and there are no statutory provision for a case to be remanded to the trial court. (The Plaintiffs had asked Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury to take evidence last week, in case the Supreme Court needed it.)

Arizona's Law has confirmed that the Plaintiffs have immediately appealed this morning's dismissal to the Arizona Supreme Court. Election challenges such as this bypass the intermediate Court of Appeals, and must be decided "promptly". The process usually takes only a few days and is without oral argument; the court usually issues a short ruling and follows up with a detailed Opinion months later.

 (This is a developing story. Please check back for further details.)
