Washington (CNN) A federal judge in Arizona has decided the court can't block a House January 6 committee subpoena for GOP state chair Kelli Ward and her husband Michael's cell phone data, a ruling that may deliver more information in the probe about the state-level backing for Donald Trump after his 2020 loss.

Judge Diane Humetewa found the court didn't have power to curtail the House's investigative steps in response to the Wards suing the committee investigating the January 6, 2021 , attack on the US Capitol.

The Wards' phone company received a subpoena in January seeking certain phone records from November 2020 through January 2021.

The Wards' lawsuit was one of several filed by people whose phone records were subpoenaed in the House probe, but it's one of the first among them with such a conclusive ruling.

The phone companies have largely allowed their customers whose records were subpoenaed to block the House from accessing them simply by filing a lawsuit, which many allies of Trump have done.

The Wards claimed in their lawsuit against the House committee that the demand for the phone records violated their constitutional rights, as they asked a federal court in Arizona to quash the subpoena. »
