Watch the Action as Tucson Takes on Arizona Today

Posted By on Tue, Dec 6, 2011 at 1:00 PM

If you enjoy political showdowns in a court of law, you'll want to tune in live to the Arizona Supreme Court's hearing of City of Tucson v. State of Arizona and Southern Arizona Leadership Council and Sen. Jonathan Paton. In case you missed the excitement so far, Tucson is unique within Arizona for holding partisan elections for city offices and for allowing the entire city to vote in the general election for ward-based City Council seats. This upset then-state-Senator Jonathan Paton (and others) who got SB 1123 passed in 2009, prohibiting cities from holding elections this way. The city fired back, stating that municipal elections were the concern of the municipality itself; the trial court sided with the state; the appeals court sided with the city; and now we're here.

You can watch the action live on your computer at 2:00 pm today via the Supreme Court's website.
