Arizona Supreme Court says candidate can be barred from ballot

(Reuters) - Arizona's Supreme Court upheld a lower-court ruling on Tuesday barring a candidate with limited English language skills from appearing on a city council ballot.

In a brief two-page ruling, the court did not give a reason for its move but said a written decision would follow "in due course."
