Wyoming Supreme Court  On Maxfield's Lawsuit

The Wyoming Supreme Court has set a date to hear arguments on Secretary of State Max Maxfield's lawsuit challenging term limits for himself and other statewide elected officials. The court this week set arguments for Oct. 24 on the lawsuit that Maxfield filed last year as a private citizen. The Wyoming Supreme Court ruled in 2004 that the term limits law was unconstitutional in regard to state legislators. The court ruled that qualifications for state offices are spelled out in the Wyoming Constitution. It said the requirements can only be changed by constitutional amendment, not state statute. The Wyoming Attorney General's Office is defending the statute against Maxwell's lawsuit.
