National File reported on the Democrats lawsuit against the audit, “Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Christoper Coury has said that the forensic audit of all 2.1 million 2020 ballots from the Arizona county, which started on Friday, should be temporarily halted from Friday at 5 p.m. until 12 p.m. on Monday. Coury said that he would like to know the policies and procedures that are in place to confirm that the audit is legal and legitimate, following a lawsuit filed late Thursday by state Democrats…”
“However, Court also confirmed that he would like the Democrats to put up $1 million in order to halt the audit, to fund any potential increase in costs that would come as a result of the temporary halt. At the time of writing, there had been no response from the Democrats as to whether they were willing to pony up the money, meaning it is unclear whether the halt will in fact take place or not. Kory Langhofer, a lawyer for the Arizona Senate, asked for any halt to be delayed, so that the Senate would have a chance to immediately appeal the decision by Judge Coury.”
State Senator Wendy Rogers tweeted about the judges ruling earlier today. “Only if the Democrats pay the $1 million bond.”
Roopali Desai attorney for the Democrats said the party won’t put up the bond. This then ends this attempt from the Democrats to stop the forensic audit. We will see if they try again in some fashion to interfere with the audit.
