Attorney Brad Cave, representing Wyoming Secretary of State Max Maxfield said the state’s term limits law violates Maxfield’s right to seek a third term. But in oral argument’s before the Wyoming Supreme Court Wednesday morning, Wyoming Attorney General Greg Phillips said that Maxfield doesn’t have standing to challenge the law because he hasn’t said whether he would seek a third term. Maxfield filed a lawsuit last year challenging the term limits law as a private citizen.The high court in 2004 rejected term limits for state legislators. It ruled the Wyoming constitution sets requirements for state office so they may only be changed by amendment, not by state law.  Cave argued the same decision should be made for the statewide elected officials. Chief Justice Marilyn S. Kite said the would take the matter under consideration and issue a written decision on the matter later.

 

Cheyenne (AP) – The Wyoming Supreme Court is set to hear arguments today in a lawsuit brought by Secretary of State Max Maxfield challenging term limits for himself and other statewide elected officials. The court in 2004 rejected the state law setting term limits for state legislators, ruling that the Wyoming constitution sets requirements for state office so they may only be changed by amendment, not by state law. Maxfield says the same principle should apply to statewide elected officials.  Wyoming Attorney General Greg Phillips will argue to defend the term limits law.
