Kari Lake Appeals Dismissal of Election Lawsuit

In an effort to contest her defeat in the Arizona gubernatorial race, Kari Lake, the Republican nominee, has appealed a Maricopa County judge’s dismissal of her election lawsuit.

On Tuesday, Lake requested that the Arizona Superior Court reconsider all 10 counts of her original lawsuit, as well as the attorneys’ fees she was ordered to pay.

Previously, the Maricopa County court had dismissed eight of the counts.

The remaining two counts, involving Election Day ballot printing issues and procedural errors, were brought to trial for two days, but ultimately did not go in Lake’s favor.

“I am standing up for the people of this state,” Lake said on Tuesday evening’s episode of Steve Bannon’s “War Room” television show.

Maricopa Judge Peter Thompson rejected Hobbs’ request to sanction Lake for the lawsuit on Tuesday, but did order Lake to reimburse Hobbs for some trial costs, with interest.
