Brewer wants to merge suits over SB1070
Published: February 16, 2012 at 8:23 am
The governor’s lawyers tell U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton that combining a lawsuit by the League of United Latin American Citizens and another challenge by Friendly House would help avoid unnecessary legal costs and prevent a duplication of evidence.
Brewer isn’t asking for a consolidation of the challenge filed by the U.S. Justice Department.
The Justice Department’s lawsuit was the case in which Bolton had blocked enforcement of the law’s most controversial elements.
The governor is appealing Bolton’s ruling.
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in Brewer’s appeal on April 25.
