A three-judge bench scheduled the morning of January 24th for a conference and oral argument in Kari Lake’s appeal against Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson’s dismissal of her lawsuit to overturn the 2022 Midterm election.
Judge Peter Thompson dismissed the lawsuit on Christmas Eve, despite the evidence of massive voter disenfranchisement targeting Republicans and obviously false testimony by County Elections officials.
The Gateway Pundit reported that Kari Lake filed her appeal, arguing the trial court dismissed “explosive findings.”

An Order Setting Dates, Directing Electronic Or Alternative Service and Fixing Time For Response was sent to attorneys for Kari Lake, Katie Hobbs, and Maricopa County on Tuesday, January 3.
“The case may be resolved, however, prior to that date if the panel declines to accept jurisdiction on the special action,” states the Court’s order.
It was ordered that objections to the lawsuit must be filed within seven business days.
The bench consists of two Ducey-appointed judges and one Democratic appointee.
Presiding Judge Maria Elena Cruz was appointed to the Court by Doug Ducey on April 12, 2017, Judge Angela K Paton was appointed by Ducey in October 2021, and Judge Peter B Swann was appointed to the Court by Democratic Governor Janet Napolitano on September 23, 2008.
Regardless of how they rule, this case is likely going to the Supreme Court. Lake has repeatedly stated that she will take her case to the Supreme Court if necessary. Maricopa County and Katie Hobbs are also expected to fight this as far as possible to hide the truth about their elections.
The Uniparty stole the Arizona Election—D’s & R’s.
The political elite despise We The People and can’t stand the fact that they work FOR us.
They want us to give up this most important fight and go back to sleep.
WE WON’T QUIT.

As The Gateway Pundit recently reported, Lake already filed a petition in the Arizona Supreme Court to hear her case and bypass the appeals court.

This election must be ruled on immediately.
Katie Hobbs will be inaugurated on Thursday, January 5.
As The Gateway Pundit reported, Hobbs was sworn into office at a private ceremony on the Ninth Floor of the Arizona Capitol Executive Tower on Monday after a narrow and highly questionable election win. In a bizarre moment of incompetence and unseriousness, Hobbs bursted out in laughter after she was told to solemnly swear that she will support the Constitution.
