The Arizona Supreme Court has granted the motion for expedited consideration of Republican Kari Lake’s lawsuit against Democrat Katie Hobbs and the state’s 2022 gubernatorial election.
Lake is suing Arizona’s election officials and then-Secretary of State Hobbs over the series of “issues” that disenfranchised Republican voters on Election Day and cost her the race.
The AZ Supreme Court has scheduled March 21 to consider whether or not Lake’s new petition will be accepted.
“At the conference, the Court will decide whether to accept review and schedule an oral argument,” the order states.
Responses from defendants were also ordered to be submitted by March 13.
On Wednesday, Lake filed a “Petition For Review” and a “Motion To Expedite” the consideration of her election fraud lawsuit in the Arizona Supreme Court.
On March 1, Lake took to Twitter to ask the nation to pray for justice.
We filed our Historic Election Integrity case with the Arizona Supreme Court.
Pray for our Attorneys.
Pray for the Judges.
Pray for Justice.
Pray for America. 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/SgFI9FixxT

She then followed through on her promise to take her appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court.
“The court of appeals’ Opinion denying petitioner Kari Lake’s appeal ruled that Arizona election laws don’t matter,” Lake’s attorneys argue.
