Floyd v. Superior Court
In Floyd v. Superior Court, 125 Ariz. 445, 610 P.2d 79 (App. 1980), the plaintiffs sued Cochise County there and then moved for change of venue to Pima County, where a related action was pending.
The respondent judge granted the motion but ordered venue changed to Santa Cruz County instead.
The Court granted special action relief, finding that, "in the face of the myriad reasons to try the case in Pima County, . . . the respondent court abused its discretion in ordering the transfer to Santa Cruz County." Id. at 446, 610 P.2d at 80.
