Judge Peter Thompson of the Superior Court of Arizona in Maricopa County has set a date to hear Kari Lake’s signature verification challenge in the wake of the Arizona State Supreme Court’s order to send the issue back to the lower court, The Gateway Pundit reported.

The case is scheduled to be heard on Thursday, March 30. Via the order, all parties involved are to make themselves available to appear for oral arguments “if the Court determined oral argument will assist a decision.”

The order further noted that if an oral argument or additional hearings were scheduled, they would be broadcast “via the Maricopa County Superior Court livestream feed for use by the general public.”

The rapidly approaching hearing date for Lake’s case comes just days after the Arizona State Supreme Court issued a momentous ruling in the conservative GOP candidate’s case against former Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and Maricopa County election officials.

Rep. Gosar, R-Ariz., applauded Lake’s legal victory.

Per RSBN, the highest court in the state rejected a large portion of Lake’s case, but they sent the signature verification challenge back to trial court. Lake stated that she was “thrilled” with the decision in an official statement.

“For years signatures have been a third rail for Maricopa County,” she wrote. “The process of verifying these signatures is the only security measure on mail-in ballots.”

She added, “The amount of time allotted to check these signatures was only 8 seconds, which is not humanly possible. The system is completely broken. That’s why they are absolutely terrified of letting anyone take a look at their signatures. The signature verification process in Maricopa County is a house of cards. Thanks to this ruling my team will get the chance to topple it.”

Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow and a vocal advocate for election integrity, noted the importance of the Arizona Supreme Court’s ruling during an interview with Steve Bannon on “War Room.”

“…they [the judge] said, ‘Hey, you gotta look at this,’ instead of kicking the can on standing, or sanctions, and all these things. This is HUGE everybody,” he stated. “And I’ve been telling everybody, the judges will bring this country back. We’ve got to keep praying for them.”
