Andrew Thomas Judgment Day May be Delayed Until April 2

A ruling on potential punishment for former Maricopa Attorney Andrew Thomas may be put off until April 2.

Citing the extensive filings and thousands of pages of exhibits in the ethics case, Arizona State Bar Disciplinary Judge William O'Neil decided to extend the time to make the ruling by 30 days. 

O'Neil and two other panelists for the Bar proceeding have the responsibility of deciding whether to disbar the former elected official and his former employee, Lisa Aubuchon. Another attorney, Rachel Alexander, faces possible suspension of her law license for her lesser role in the abuse-of-power allegations.

The panel could still announce their decision before April 2.
