Judge declines to enter judgment in CPFER v. Respect Arizona

The snafu over Klayman’s pro hac vice application became moot along with the constitutionality of A.R.S. § 19-202(A)

PHOENIX – Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Lisa Flores declined to exercise the court’s discretion to enter a declaratory judgment in Citizens to Protect Fair Election Results (CPFER) v. Respect Arizona as to the constitutionality of A.R.S. § 19-202(A), which states: “A recall petition shall not be circulated against any officer until he has held office for six months, except that a petition may be filed against a member of the legislature at any time after five days from the beginning of the first session after his election. The commencement of a subsequent term in the same office does not renew the six month period delaying the circulation of a recall petition.”
The last sentence appears to conflict with the Arizona Constitution, which allows for no such exception.
