Maricopa County, Arizona, Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson on Monday ruled against Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake in her election challenge of Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs’ victory in November’s election.

The three-day trial centered on the issue of whether Maricopa County followed Arizona law during the signature review process for mail-in ballots.

Thompson noted in his ruling that during the trial, Lake’s legal team identified 274,000 signatures that were compared in less than two seconds and 70,000 that were reviewed in less than one second.

Lake expert witness Erich Speckin testified that he did not think it was possible to compare signatures for consistency in less than three seconds.

Thompson characterized Lake’s argument as being that “this is so deficient for signature comparison that it amounts to no process at all.”

“Accepting that argument would require the Court to re-write not only the [Election Procedures Manual] but Arizona law to insert a minimum time for signature verification and specify the variables to be considered in the process,” the judge wrote.

“The Court finds that looking at signatures that, by and large, have consistent characteristics will require only a cursory examination and thus take very little time,” Thompson continued.
