Kari Lake’s Case Kept Alive by AZ Supreme Court; Signature Verification Claim Sent Back to Lower Courts

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.7

On Wednesday, after declining the majority of Kari Lake’s appeals, the Arizona Supreme Court kept the case alive by sending one of the claims back to a lower court for review.  Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake made seven legal claims in her case arguing alleged election fraud, in which six claims were properly dismissed by lower courts.  However, an opinion written by Chief Justice Robert Brutinel released Wednesday states that the claim challenging the application of signature verification procedures on early ballots in Maricopa County was erroneously dismissed in trial court and was sent back for reconsideration to the lower courts.
