PHOENIX — Three current and former Republican lawmakers are hoping to avoid paying the legal fees of a Democrat who a judge said was unfairly sued by them because she and others asked the FBI and Department of Justice to investigate their actions around the Jan. 6 riot.

Kelley Jancaitis is doing more than asking the Court of Appeals to reinstate their slander suit against Charlene Fernandez. That was tossed out last year by Yuma County Superior Court Judge Levi Gunderson who said Fernandez had an absolute First Amendment right to do what she did.
