Answer: I always recommend consulting the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act found here: https://housing.az.gov/sites/default/files/documents/files/AZ%20Residential%20Landlord%20and%20Tenant%20Act%20-%20Revised%20July%203%202015.pdf  It looks like your trial date had already passed. If it has not, you have the right to appear and present your side of the story. You should bring any written notices/complaints you've provided to the landlord together with photographs and other evidence of problems with the unit, repairs, and the like. If your trial date has not already passed and you have additional questions, please submit a new question. Please note that I am providing general information based on the very limited information available to me. I am unable to provide you with legal advice, and no attorney-client relationship is created hereby. I wish you the best in this and all your endeavors.
