Special Action Litigation - An Appellate Practice Section CLE Program

“Special actions” are, as the name suggests, a unique form of appellate proceeding.  Whether and when to file a petition for special action depends on a number of factors including the procedural posture of the case, the ruling at issue, and the vulnerability of the interests at stake. This CLE explains the ins and outs of special action proceedings.  Join a group of judges and appellate litigators for a discussion of the ins and outs of special actions, including an examination of the relevant rules and procedures, the life cycle of a special action proceeding, and tips for increasing the chances a court will accept discretionary special action jurisdiction in your case.  Panelists include a judge on the Arizona Court of Appeals, a former Maricopa County Attorney’s Office appeals bureau chief and frequent special action filer, and a contributor to the Arizona Appellate Handbook chapter on special actions.

Date and Time: Wednesday, September 28, 2022, 12:00­–1:00 pm
CLE Credit: May Qualify for 1.0 CLE credit
Cost: FREE FOR Appellate Practice Section Members, $20 for Others
