Arizona Employer Sanctions Law Survives Legal Challenge

After much legal wrangling, the federal district judge presiding over the lawsuit challenging the AZ Employer Sanctions Law has upheld the law.  In a detailed legal opinion issued last week, the judge rejected all legal arguments raised by the business group plaintiffs.  The plaintiffs are appealing the case to the 9th Circuit.  I will keep you posted of further legal developments; however, in the meantime, you should assume the law is in effect and proceed accordingly.
