A federal judge late Friday tossed out the lawsuit challenging Arizona's employer-sanctions law, setting the stage for a quick second round of legal action before Jan. 1, when the law is set to take effect.

U.S. District Judge Neil Wake ruled that the business and Latino groups aimed their legal fire at the wrong targets in suing the governor and the state attorney general. Instead, they should have brought their complaint against the 15 county attorneys charged with enforcing the law.

The judge also suggested that the lawsuit was premature because there is no evidence anyone has been harmed. The ruling stunned attorneys representing the 12 groups that brought the suit in July.

There will be more challenges to the Employer Sanctions Law here; trust me, but I suspected this one lawsuit would be shot down.

The pendulum is swinging-------fast against illegals now.

This is great news. It will be interesting to see what the very liberal 9TH circuit does once the law goes into effect. Businesses will be able to appeal this up. I hope it gets upheld.

You can bet the Anti-American ACLU will be having a field day with this one. They have absolutely no respect for the will of the people.

Honestly? I don't think the ACLU will touch this with a ten foot poll -
