Arizona Appeal To Be Argued Election Week

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has denied the State of Arizona's motion to expedite the appeal from the preliminary injunction enjoining key provisions of S.B. 1070. (h/t Michelle Malkin) The Department of Justice has objected to an expedited briefing schedule.

The case now will be argued the week of November 1.

That may make DOJ lawyers happy, because they will have more time to put together their brief.

But it will not make Democratic politicians happy to have the Arizona case on the front page as voters are walking into the voting booth on November 2.

Democrats wished too hard for something, and they got it.

  1. I'm not a constitution lawyer, but, an article from the from the CFP(http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/25983)says that the supreme court has original jurisdiction.

  2. From the link cited in the 12:14 comment above.

    "Article IV, Sec. 4, requires the federal government to protect each of the States against invasion.Not only is the Obama regime refusing to perform this specific Constitutional duty - it seeks to prohibit the Sovereign STATE of Arizona from defending itself! This lawlessness on the part of the Obama regime is unmatched in the history of Our Country."

    The Republican Party should run that as a full page ad in a different major USA news paper every day until the Nov Election and on every major TV network at least once a week.
