Bill Montgomery Says Pima County Attorney is Stealing His Time in Abortion Hearing at Ninth Circuit Court
Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery
"I think there's a 'Deputy' in front of your title," Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery tells one of the Pima County Attorney's underlings in an October 31 e-mail.
Montgomery makes the smarty-pants comment in a series of recent, heated e-mails released today in court records from a lawsuit against Arizona's new ban on late-term abortions.
The records were released because Montgomery's trying to deny Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall, time to speak as a defendant in the lawsuit before the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court on Monday -- even though she is a defendant.
Montgomery filed an emergency motion on Thursday, asking LaWall to be kicked over the plaintiffs' side if she wants to speak.
His problem is that LaWall doesn't support the Arizona law.
