  • Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson on Tuesday rejected Democratic Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs’ request to sanction her former opponent, Republican nominee Kari Lake, for a lawsuit challenging Arizona’s election results.
  • Hobbs, in her official capacity as both secretary of state and governor-elect, along with Maricopa County, filed the request to force Lake and her legal team to pay the attorneys’ fees for all parties in the election lawsuit, which the county and Hobbs said was groundless and in bad faith.
  • Lake, however, will be required under Thompson’s ruling to reimburse Hobbs more than $33,000 for some costs during the trial because she lost the case. The bulk of the fees is for expert witnesses that Hobbs called in.
