Presiding Judge Anna Huberman, on behalf of the Maricopa County Justice Court Bench, hereby comments with respect to this pending petition.
While the Maricopa County Justice Court bench has no opposition to the primary goals of the Petitioner, we oppose some of the language in the Petition because it potentially conflicts with a party’s ability to file motions or requests that are well recognized and needed. We also oppose the suggested removal of a post-judgment right to counsel.
By the way, the thread for this topic should no longer read "Proposed" Small Claims Rules.
