Lawsuit alleges AG Curtis Hill no longer meets requirements of his office
The lawsuit filed Thursday comes after the state Supreme Court declined on Monday a request from the governor for a ruling settling that question.
The Republican attorney general began serving the 30-day suspension Monday.
The lawsuit filed by Democratic lawyer William Groth argues Hill no longer meets the requirement that the attorney general be “duly licensed to practice law."
The attorney general’s office didn’t immediately comment on the lawsuit.
