Arizona: Lawsuit in rejection of signatures for Fountain Hills Vice Mayor recall

An evidentiary hearing is being held to look into Maricopa County Recorder rejection of the  signatures on a petition to recall Fountain Hills Vice Mayor Ginny Dickey. The petition fell short by 12 votes.
The Vice Mayor was one of two people targeted for a recall -- Town Councilman Henry Leger's recall was certified, and will take place on March 13.
The issue on the signatures is the standard used -- strict construction or significant compliance. The recorder used a strict construction standard. The article runs through the rejected signatures. Sounds like this case has a chance.
