Attorneys for Gov. Jan Brewer and Attorney General Terry Goddard have asked a judge to dismiss a Latino clergy group’s lawsuit that seeks to overturn Arizona’s new immigration law.
The lawsuit by the National Coalition of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders and others had alleged that the law was unconstitutional and would lead to racial profiling.
Lawyers for Brewer and Goddard say the lawsuit should be dismissed, in part, because those filing the case haven’t shown that they have suffered actual harm from the law.
A federal judge last week put the law’s most controversial portions on hold in a separate challenge filed by the U.S. Justice Department.
In all, seven challenges to the law have been filed.
