Tucson Loses Court Fight Over Partisan Elections

Posted By on Thu, Mar 4, 2010 at 1:27 PM

Pima County Superior Court Judge Michael Miller has ruled that state law trumps the city of Tucson charter when it comes to having non-partisan, ward-only elections.

Republican Jonathan Paton pushed the law last year as a member of the state Senate.

The City of Tucson filed a suit claiming that the city should have the right to hold elections as it sees fit.

Here's a copy of Miller's ruling: C2009_7207_City_of_Tucson_v_State_Order_and_Judgment.pdf
