AG opposes Motl’s term extension; wants Supreme Court to decide

Attorney General Tim Fox said Tuesday in court papers that the term of Montana’s top political enforcer should have ended Jan. 1 – and the state Supreme Court should take over and decide the lawsuit trying to extend the term.

Fox asked a state judge to allow him to intervene in the lawsuit seeking to extend the term of Commissioner of Political Practices Jonathan Motl until 2019 – and then to immediately halt the case and let the Montana Supreme Court decide it.
