, chief deputy of the Maricopa County Attorney's Office , says the order likely won't increase his
attorneys' workload because it only applies to criminal cases that are ready to go to trial.But he's not sure.
It's too early to tell , he
says.That order just came out.I don't know what long-term impact it'll have.If we're ready to go to trial , it doesn't matter to us if the case is before a civil judge or a criminal judge..Ahler
says it's difficult to have a case on hold , waiting for a judge , particularly when a prosecutor is trying to keep track of witnesses.
