Opponents of immigration law oppose merging suits

A coalition of opponents of Arizona’s 2010 immigration enforcement law have asked a judge to deny Gov. Jan Brewer’s request to consolidate two of the three remaining lawsuits seeking to overturn the law.

Lawyers representing Friendly House and other groups say there are substantial differences between its lawsuit and another challenge by the League of United Latin American Citizens.

The governor’s lawyers told U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton that combining the lawsuit by the two lawsuits would help avoid unnecessary legal costs and prevent a duplication of evidence.

Bolton had blocked enforcement of the law’s most controversial elements in July 2010.

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in Brewer’s appeal of Bolton’s ruling on April 25.
