The Supreme Court upheld a decision which stopped the recall of Phoenix City Councilman Michael Nowakowski (D). The recall had been set for May 21. Nowakowski's sister filed the suit claiming that the PAC missed three requirements in submitting the petitions (attaching official city documents to each petition sheet alongside a serial number and time and date stamp).
The recall is over a vote to study and potentially delay a light rail expansion. Nowakowski was previously threatened with a recall over same-sex marriage and transgender bathroom issues. Petitioners handed in 2361 signatures and needed 1331.
