PHOENIX - State Sen. Scott Bundgaard has filed a lawsuit seeking to block a Senate ethics probe stemming from a February domestic violence incident involving a former girlfriend.
The Peoria Republican's lawsuit filed Monday in Maricopa County Superior Court against members of the Senate Ethics Committee contends that the committee didn't meet a deadline to hold a hearing.
A lawyer hired to act as independent counsel in the case tells the Arizona Capitol Times that he's confident the committee will prevail.
Attorney Kory Langhofer also says he doesn't believe the court has authority to tell the legislative branch how to conduct its internal affairs.
Bundgaard pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor endangerment charge stemming from the freeway altercation that left him and Aubry Ballard bruised and battered.
