SCOTUSThe Supreme Court on Monday rejected an effort by Arizona’s two top state legislators to avoid sitting for depositions in an ongoing lawsuit challenging two state voting laws as racially discriminatory.

Arizona House Speaker Ben Toma (R) and Arizona Senate President Warren Petersen (R) had filed an emergency request urging the justices to pause a lower ruling that mandates the lawmakers hand over documents and be deposed in the case.

Toma and Petersen argued that doing so would violate legislative privilege.

Without any noted dissents, the justices rejected the lawmakers’ request in a brief order issued Monday.
