Election Integrity Heads Back To Court (clarified version)

Posted By on Tue, Feb 19, 2008 at 8:33 AM

Tucson attorney Bill Risner will soon be back in Pima County Superior Court on behalf of those election-integrity-loving Pima County Democrats.

On Monday, Feb. 25 at 3 p.m., Risner goes before Judge Michael Miller to request that the court look at objections Risner filed against Miller’s findings of fact from his Dec. 18 ruling in the Dems’ public records lawsuit against the Pima County Board of Supervisors.

Another topic to be addressed at the hearing: Risner’s request for about $300,000 in attorney's fees.

Expect Risner to return to court later on another motion he filed Feb. 13 to request a hearing on the disclosure of all election data files going back to when the county began to use its Diebold system in 1997.

"What's the harm in getting us stuff that's 10 years old?" Risner asks. "We now have all the 2006 election files and all the RTA files. There's no security risk."

Risner says the Dems need the files to compare the 2006 and Regional Transportation Authority election files that the Democrats are analyzing. The group suspects the early files are clean, but could be helpful in comparing the ones they think may stink.
