Governor’s lawsuit against General Assembly is now in court

Indianapolis, IN — It will probably sometime in July before a judge will decide the outcome of a political and constitutional dispute between Gov. Eric Holcomb, the state legislature and Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita.

Attorney General Rokita testified before a Marion County judge that a new law allowing lawmakers to call themselves into special session is constitutional.

Holcomb is challenging the law and is asking the court to allow him to hire private attorneys to do so.

Rokita’s role as Attorney General is to act as the state’s official lawyer but – in this case – he is siding with lawmakers.
