Judge To Rule On Proceedings Of Case Against Attorney General Horne

Tom-HorneA Maricopa County Superior Court judge is expected to issue a ruling today on a request from Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne and an aide to throw out a campaign finance case against them. 

Horne and Kathleen Winn argue that Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery cannot proceed because Arizona law required Secretary of State Ken Bennett to send it to Horne's office for review, not Montgomery's.  

An administrative law judge agreed but Montgomery rejected the finding. Horne and Winn asked the Superior Court to review that decision and a judge held a hearing Wednesday and says he will rule today. 

The case alleges that Horne and Winn illegally coordinated campaign spending during Horne's 2010 campaign.
