Lisa Aubuchon Appeal in State Bar Investigation Declined by Arizona Supreme Court; Speculation Rampant on Possible Upcoming Bar Action

The state Supreme Court has declined to consider a last-ditch effort by Lisa Aubuchon to block the distribution of answers she gave in a State Bar investigation.
​What some see as the last remaining obstacle for State Bar action against former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas and former Deputy County Attorney Lisa Aubuchon has come down.

John Gleason, a Colorado lawyer assigned to probe allegations of prosecutorial abuse by Thomas and Aubuchon, has been working on the case for the State Bar for a few months. Rumor has it that he's pretty much finished and may be preparing to announce his findings, but was held back because of a pending state Supreme Court ruling on a last-ditch appeal by Aubuchon.

Today, the high court decided not to take up Aubuchon's appeal, which sought to block her answers to Gleason's questions from being distributed to the very people she once tried to prosecute. You can read more detail about her hail Mary tactic from a blog post we wrote last month about it, which comes complete with a link to the special action motion she filed.

 

Some of our anti-Thomas/Aubuchon sources have sounded giddy in the last week or two at the idea that if the court declines Aubuchon's case, Gleason will soon announce something.

We're not holding our breath, having heard for the past year or so about "imminent" action by the State Bar, state Attorney General's Office and U.S. Attorney's Office against Thomas, Aubuchon, and officials from the Sheriff's Office.

But it makes sense that nothing would have happened while the state Supreme Court could still decide to back Aubuchon.

Now, it looks like it might finally be open season.

Lisa Aubuchon is so ugly inside and outside, when she walks past a restroom the toilets flush!!!

Personally considering what she did to my family One down two or three to go. The bar had better take the appropriate action and disbar NOT suspend. Long overdue.

I used to be of the opinion that it was wrong for that man to give her a civil service position within the DA's office immediately after Thomas left, but now that time has passed, it's so much better seeing her dismissed for cause by Romley. She's not once displayed even an ounce of humility, even after Thomas has long since abandoned her. Amazing that people with low self-esteem (such as she) are willing to take bullets for people like Thomas, and then even join in on kicking the bodies.

"We're not holding our breath, having heard for the past year or so about "imminent" action by the State Bar, state Attorney General's office and U.S. Attorney's Office against Thomas, Aubuchon and official from the Sheriff's Office."

I suppose "imminent" action is defined by the beholder. I always think of imminent to be damn near immediately. I guess some folks think it means, "in the next year or so".

I noticed Aubuchon seems to have an unusually wide mouth. I guess that might be an asset from time to time.

I am glad to see this action (or inaction) by the court.

As an attorney, you never want to see someone's livelihood taken away. But there have never been two attorneys less deserving of a license than Andrew Thomas and Lisa Aubuchon. 300+ attorneys on the steps of the Superior Court last December agreed. Anything less than disbarrment will be a major disappointment to members of the Bar.

Her wide mouth reminds me of a swamp creature....better keep your kids indoors.

She looks awfully hungry, and I wouldn't doubt she'd eat anything that crossed her path.

Chad, Well said. We couldn't agree more. It's time to end this reign of terror and put the others in the MCAO on notice that abuse of power will not be tolerated. It's time to have an outside independent investigation of the innocent and wrongfully convicted in their 200,000 convictions since 2005. If 10% are innocent, which is a conservative figure, that would equal 20,000 cases. This is serious when lives are destroyed in this manner. This should be criminal in itself. It's time to end absolute immunity for prosecutors. The 200,000 is an outrageous number that demands investigation and prison time for the two.

Chad, you're absolutely correct. Aubuchon deserves whatever she gets, as long as it includes her losing her license.

By the way, who but a fool would have Barnett Lottein represent you in ANYTHING? Totally hideous, Deserving of what is going to happen to both of them.

Can't wait until Aubuchon's license is dust.
