PHOENIX (AP) - A court proceeding on a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge against Arizona Attorney Tom Horne is being postponed again and his lawyer says he is trying to reach a settlement with prosecutors.
Horne's attorney requested and obtained a second one-month delay in a pretrial conference that was scheduled Monday in Phoenix Municipal Court.
Michael Kimerer's request says he needs more time to evaluate the evidence and interview "critical witnesses." He also wrote in a Dec. 13 motion he is having ongoing settlement communications with city prosecutors he hopes lead to a resolution.
Horne is accused of not leaving a note after FBI agents saw him tap another vehicle while driving a borrowed car earlier this year.
Horne says he didn't think the other vehicle was damaged. He has pleaded not guilty.
