Felons can no longer sue victims

Arizona voters passed Proposition 114, as expected, by an overwhelming 80% margin. The Arizona Constitution will be amended to abolish the right of aggressors to sue their victims if they are harmed in the process of committing a felony offense. There was little opposition, and no formal organized arguments “against” the measure prior to the election.

The constitution previously allowed for an unrestricted right of a person to sue another if they were harmed or injured by the person or property owner. However, this enabled some criminal offenders to sue their victims.
