Ann A. Scott Timmer (born September 12, 1960)[2] is a justice of the Arizona Supreme Court.


Timmer attended the University of Arizona and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1982.[3] Timmer graduated from Arizona State University College of Law in 1985.[4]


Prior to her appointment to the Arizona Supreme Court, Timmer was the chief judge of the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division One. She was appointed in 2000 by former Governor Jane Dee Hull. Timmer was retained to the court in 2002 and 2008.

Timmer also previously worked for private law firms in Phoenix, Arizona. She focused on commercial and employment litigation, and tried capital murder cases both as a defense attorney and as a special prosecutor.[5]


Justice Timmer's sister, Laurie Roberts, is a columnist for the Arizona Republic. Roberts frequently writes columns that are critical of Arizona's judiciary and other aspects of Arizona government.[6]

Timmer is married and has three daughters. Because one of her daughters is deaf, Timmer learned American Sign Language at the Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind in Tucson.[7]
