Tom Horne argued a case personally before the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals this summer. Tomorrow, he'll appear before the Arizona Supreme Court on another case.

As an elected official, Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne could make himself as relatively unseen as, well, Governor Jan Brewer.

But Horne likes to get his hands dirty every now and then in the legal field, arguing the law in person before judges. Did Terry Goddard ever do that?

Tomorrow at 2 p.m., you can watch Horne live or on the computer as he defends a state law prohibiting partisan elections in Tucson city government. He'll be at the Thunderbird School of Global Management in Glendale, where the Arizona Supreme Court will convene temporarily for two cases.



We watched Horne's performance before the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals back in June, during which he defended the rights of Arizona voters who passed a law requiring ID before voting. Although we'd heard some criticism of his Ninth Circuit appearance from a local lawyer, we'd still give him at least three stars.

Being grilled by Appeals Court justices is certainly harder for a politician than kissing babies.

Conmen and Conwomen, Arizona is full of them. 99 percent of the attorneys and judges in this state are as corrupt as Al Capone was. This slob fits the bill.

You mean to tell me that Elmer Fudd has finally found a case he doesn't have a conflict of interest with. I would be more impressed if he actually did his job & investigated all the corruption & malfeasance in the MCSO,now that would be impressive.

Bnbk, As well as the MCAO and the damage done by the Thomas "troika" and his 250,000 felony cases since 2005. The taxpayers and state of Arizona will pay for decades for the damage done. Now swept under the rug??

Just because a state's attorney general can personally argue a case, doesn't mean they should.  It's not like an episode of Law & Order where the D.A. personally argues a case.

Tom Horne actually representing the people? I may have been wrong about him.

not really, when he was a county attorney for Yavapai county he lost a court case I could have one (not being a lawyer and all).

Still, the fact that he hasn't cried conflict of interest and is personally appearing to argue this case is remarkable.

Now, if only he could resolve the MCSO/MCAO BS created by the Old Geezer and his mentally ill and soon to be disbarred sidekick, Candy Andy, I would be impressed with this fool.

Are you a Felicia Rotellini hack are just an utter moron?  Every time something about Horne comes up you are right on here just waiting to reply to any comments.  Horne was never a County Attorney for Yavapai County and by the time he was Superintendent of Schools one of his daughters had graduated from Harvard medical school and the other was in grad school.

even then I dont know if I would be impressed. He would have to win like 1000 cases that are hard for me to think of this bumbling moronic oaf to be anything but an asshat. He doesn't like people chanting, he can't win simple breach of contract cases, etc.. I would rather he not be in charge of anything. Isn't it telling that when director of our schools he had to write rules so his own dumb daughter could graduate?
