Pearce Not Wanted at Ruling on SB1070

The author of controversial Arizona law, Russell Pearce, was told that the U.S. Justice Department does not want him at the appeal of a ruling that put a hold on parts of the law.

The Justice Department told the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that the senator should not be a party to the appeal because Governor Jan Brewster’s attorneys will already be present to defend his law, SB1070.

Attorneys for Pearce are claiming he has a unique interest in the defense of the law’s objectives and is worried the state does not properly represent his interests.
