PHOENIX (AP)- Two former Maricopa County prosecutors still are appealing disciplinary decisions of an Arizona Supreme Court panel.

Lisa Aubuchon was disbarred in April while Rachel Alexander was suspended from practice for six months and one day.

The state's high court stayed Alexander's suspension in May pending her appeal, but declined Aubuchon's request to let her continue practicing law until her appeal is ruled on.

Aubuchon and Alexander were sanctioned for actions against judges and county officials between 2008 and 2010. That included pressing criminal charges without probable cause, conducting investigations and prosecutions for political reasons and filing a federal racketeering lawsuit that was judged frivolous.

The Arizona Supreme Court says Chief Justice Rebecca White Berch has recused herself from the case. State Court of Appeals Judge Lawrence Winthrop will fill in.
