Maricopa County Craziness

Andrew Thomas Decision Due This Morning; Former Maricopa County Attorney and Underlings' Legal Career on Ropes

Former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas is about to learn whether or not he has an Arizona law license.

Thomas and his former deputies, Lisa Aubuchon and Rachel Alexander are facing punishment on a range of alleged ethical violations, which you can read about in previous New Times coverage.

We're here in the lobby of the Arizona Supreme Court building this morning, 1501 West Washington. The doors to the courtroom are scheduled to open at 8:30.

You'll know whether Thomas and Aubuchon are disbarred, as expected, nearly as soon as we do. So check back.
