According to Senator Pearce’s memorandum (Case No. 10-cv-01413-SRB), filed by Judicial Watch on July 20, 2010: 

The law of this Circuit is clear.  In 1983, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit held that nothing in federal law precludes a city from enforcing the criminal provisions of immigration law.  Gonzalez v. City of Peoria, 722 F.2d 468, 476 (9th Cir. 1983).  By enacting Senate Bill 1070, as amended by House Bill 2162 (“SB 1070”), the Arizona legislature simply codified already existing enforcement provisions of federal law that has been the law of the land in some regard for more than fifty years. 

By seeking to enjoin Sections 1-6 of SB 1070 from taking effect, Plaintiff seeks to overturn 20 years of precedent.  Plaintiff also asks that this Court ignore Congress’ intentions that states and localities play a vital role in immigration enforcement efforts…Plaintiff’s motion is without merit and a preliminary injunction is not warranted.

I'm a little bummed that the challenge comes, not from  Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard's office, nor the Arizona senate, but from Judicial Watch on behalf of Sen Russell Pearce, Author of Arizona SB 1070.   Seems to indicate a certain lack of resoluteness.  Am I missing something?  I hope.

As we learned,  laying a computer on its side, and running the CD drive can have negative consequences. But not what you'd  think.  Fortunately, the good people at HP sent me a replacement, on condition that I return the broken device.  Guess what fell out of its bowels when I removed it?  That's right, the mini installation CD with a chunk torn off (left in photo).Ha ha.  Stupid damned mini-disc.
