Arizona legislator won't sue over colleague's eligibility for office

PHOENIX -- An Arizona legislator won't file a legal challenge against a newly appointed colleague's residential qualifications for office.

However, Rep. Albert Hale's lawyer said the St. Michaels Democrat says he may run against Sen. Carlyle Begay in the party's 2014 primary for state Senate from Legislative District 7 in northeastern Arizona.

Begay had listed the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert as his home until soon before he applied for appointment to fill the Senate vacancy created when Jack Jackson Jr. resigned to take a federal job. Begay said he lives in Ganado.

The Arizona Capitol Times reported that Hale's attorney Tom Ryan said his client cited the high costs of going to court for why he won't sue to challenge Begay's eligibility for office.
