Pension Initiative Might Be Off the City Ballot After All

Posted By on Thu, Sep 12, 2013 at 11:56 AM

This just in: The initiative to scrap the city of Tucson's pension system might not make the November ballot after all.

The Arizona Court of Appeals has ruled that "the trial court erred in rejecting the plaintiffs/appellants/cross-appellees' challenge as the validity of certain signatures obtained by circulators of the City of Tucson's Initiative Petition 2013-1004."

As a result, the appeals court has ordered that the Judge James Marner's judgment in favor of the petition supporters be reversed and called for an injunction to block the prop from appearing on the ballot.

We'll have reaction as we can get it, but we'd imagine that an appeal will give the Arizona Supreme Court the final word on this one.
