- CONSERVATIVE BRIEF - AUG 26, 2021 - Martin Walsh - GELLER REPORT -
The Arizona Court of Appeals ruled that the state Senate must release records from the contractor hired to conduct the review of Maricopa County’s 2020 election.
The Court of Appeals held that documents from Cyber Ninjas, the lead contractor on the Maricopa County audit, are public records, The Hill reported.
“The Senate defendants, as officers and a public body under the (records law), have a duty to maintain and produce public records related to their official duties,” the Appeals Court judges wrote.
“This includes the public records created in connection with the audit of a separate governmental agency, authorized by the legislative branch of state government and performed by the Senate’s agents. … The requested records are no less public records simply because they are in the possession of a third party, Cyber Ninjas,” the judges added in their decision.
The release of the final report on the audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, is being delayed again after three members of the team tested positive for coronavirus.
In a statement announcing the news, Arizona Snate President Karen Fann said she expects the full report to be complete by next Monday.
“The team expected to have the full draft ready for the Senate today, but unfortunately Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan and two other members of the five-person audit team have tested positive for COVID-19 and are quite sick. The Senate legal team will meet Wednesday to start reviewing the draft report,” Fann wrote in her statement.
