PHOENIX -- A court proceeding on a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge against Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne is being postponed again and his lawyer said 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 said 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 said he didn't think the other vehicle was damaged. He has pleaded not guilty.
