The AZ Court of Appeals AFFIRMED a $17,000 sanctions award against the AZ GOP today.
The 2020 election case is the one where the AZGOP claimed that Maricopa County erred by auditing vote Center results rather than precinct results. (A distinction without a difference, in most ways. Especially since the law had adjusted for the shift.)
The AZ GOP has already deposited the monies with the court. If not appealed to the AZ Supreme Court, the money will be released to the County.
This is the oldest of the outstanding election case sanctions issues.
As we've previously noted, the amounts requested/awarded are gradually increasing.
