    Arizona Bar No. 018947
    North Valley Justice Court
    14264 West Tierra Buena Lane
    Surprise, AZ 85274

    The Justice of the Peace Bench in Maricopa County unanimously requests that the proposed amendment, and any alternative, be rejected. This highly problematic rule change would impact every residential action filed in the state. It is an attempt to address the comparatively rare situation of a tenant being defaulted either due to a problem interacting with court technology or due to not having reliable transportation. When such a situation occurs, a tenant already has an existing legal remedy because a tenant can file a motion to set aside a default judgment . There are existing remedies and it is clear that the proposed rule, and any alternatives, are as unworkable as they are unnecessary.
