Limits sought on filings on new immigration law

Gov. Jan Brewer’s lawyers are asking a federal judge to put limits in filing of some briefs and motions in one of the legal challenges to Arizona’s new immigration enforcement law.

A motion filed Thursday in U.S. District court requests limits on so-called “friend of the court” briefs and motions because of what it calls the “sheer volume” of filings by interested parties. It says that volume is due to the high level of attention garnered by the law.

The motion says many of the filings do nothing more than restate the original lawsuit’s arguments or speculate about the potential impact of the law.

One requested limit is that groups which aren’t parties to the suit be required to show they’ve got unique perspectives or information to convey.
