Lake v. Hobbs — Amicus Brief in Support of Petition for Review

Jeremiah Morgan Arizona Supreme Court, Constitutional Law, Election Law

Today, David Hardy of Tucson, Arizona, filed an amicus brief, that our firm prepared with him, in support of Kari Lake’s Petition for Review in the Arizona Supreme Court. Our amicus brief argued that the Lake only needed to prove her case by a preponderance of the evidence, not by the clear and convincing standard applied by the courts below. Furthermore, our brief argued that Lake needed to show only that the irregularities on election day rendered the outcome uncertain, not that the outcome of the election would have been changed. Finally, our brief addressed the lower courts’ erroneous dismissal of the Equal Protection claims and that those courts ignored the election officials’ failure to perform their statutory duties.
