Pearce recall lawsuit objections in Phoenix courtroom

Posted: Updated:

Objections over the recall election of State Senate President Russell Pearce took center stage Monday in a Phoenix courtroom.

Each side got an hour to make their case about whether the election should actually happen.

A Pearce supporter filed a lawsuit claiming the way recall supporters collected signatures was fraudulent.  But the recall group says the lawsuit is a waste of time.

Pearce was not at Monday's hearing.
