Represented the plaintiff in an original special action challenge in the Arizona Supreme Court to the Arizona Legislature's sweep of interest income from an account under the plaintiff's name created by a 2006 ballot initiative. The Arizona Supreme Court held that the legislative sweep violated a provision of the Arizona Constitution that prohibits the legislature from diverting funds “allocated to a specific purpose by an initiative measure” without a three-fourths majority in each legislative chamber and without furthering the purpose of the initiative. The court concluded that the act failed to pass with a three-fourths majority in each house and did not further the purpose of the initiative and was therefore unconstitutional. The court ordered the return of the $7 million plus interest. 221 Ariz. 427, 212 P.3d 805 (2009)
