Brewer faces appellate deadline over SB1070 ruling
Published: April 30, 2012 at 9:52 am
Gov. Jan Brewer faces a May 9 deadline for filing her appeal of a ruling that prevents police from enforcing yet another portion of Arizona’s 2010 immigration enforcement law.
Brewer is appealing U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton’s Feb. 29 ruling that blocked police from enforcing the law’s prohibition on blocking traffic when people seek or offer day labor services on streets.
The ban was among a handful of provisions allowed to take effect after a July 2010 decision by Bolton halted enforcement of the law’s most controversial elements.
The governor had previously told the courts she’ll appeal the February ruling and has until May 9 to file her opening appellate brief.
The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments last week in Brewer’s appeal of Bolton’s July 2010 ruling.
