Appeals court denies early Gilbert council seating for Laurin Hendrix

Laurin Hendrix

The Arizona Court of Appeals denied council member-elect Laurin Hendrix’s appeal to immediately be seated on the Gilbert Town Council and have the votes by his appointed predecessor voided.

The judges on Wednesday called off the oral argument that was scheduled for next week, maintaining the ruling from Maricopa County Superior Court in September, which granted Hendrix the right to be seated on Nov. 3, rather than waiting until January per town custom.

Hendrix was partially satisfied with that decision from Superior Court Judge Daniel Kiley, but he appealed the ruling in the hopes of being seated even earlier. He also wanted all council decisions made since Aug. 18, the date his election became official, to be voided until he could vote in place of Bill Spence, the appointed council member he defeated.
