U.S. appeals court OKs decision blocking Arizona immigration law ›

(CNN) — A federal appeals court on Monday affirmed a previous injunction of Arizona’s controversial immigration law, another setback for legislation that has drawn sharp opposition from President Barack Obama’s administration.

In its ruling, a three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit sided with the U.S. Justice Department and against Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed the measure known as SB 1070 into law last year.
