    The Attorney General’s Office supports this petition. Rule of Procedure for Special Actions 10(h) should be amended so that its deadline for filing an opening brief is consistent with the sixty-day deadline in Arizona Rule of Civil Appellate Procedure 15(a)(1). Amendment is especially warranted because Rule 10(h) expressly incorporates Rule 15(a)(1)’s deadlines for filing answering and reply briefs.
