The Goldwater Institute releases its "Legislative Report Card" annually for all Arizona legislators. This report card tracks how legislators voted on key votes and assigns them a letter grade based on how closely their votes agree with the Institute's positions. The primary values emphasized in the ratings are whether votes expand or restrict liberty.[7]


Court received a score of 64 out of 100 in the 2012 report card for a grade of B according to the Goldwater Institute’s grading scale. This score was the same as his score on the 2011 report card. Court’s 64 in 2012 was tied for the 22nd highest grade among all 60 Arizona State Representatives.[7]
