Arizona Revised Statutes § 22-303 Change Of Venue; Grounds

22-303. Change of venue; grounds

A. If either party in an action pending in a justice court, after the complaint has been filed, files an affidavit in the action alleging any of the grounds specified in subsection B of this section and gives five days' notice to the opposite party, the venue may be changed as provided by law.

B. Grounds that may be alleged for change of venue are:

1. There exists in the precinct where the action is pending so great a prejudice against the party requesting a change of venue that the party cannot obtain a fair and impartial trial.

2. The convenience of witnesses and the ends of justice would be promoted by the change.

3. The court determines that there is other good and sufficient cause.

C. The court shall determine the truth and sufficiency of the grounds, but a decision refusing the change of venue is appealable.
