Responses to SB 1070 ruling

Posted: Updated:

Tucson Chief of Police Roberto Villasenor weighed in on the decision by Judge Bolton. Wednesday afternoon he spoke about the parts of the law that were blocked. Also he talked about the parts of the law that his officers will follow.

Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard had tough words on SB 1070 for Governor Brewer.

Reactions to the ruling were mixed and largely fell along party lines.

SB 1070's sponsor expressed disappointment over Wednesday's ruling.

Governor Brewer may sound optimistic about the state's chances with appeals, but a local legal expert disagrees.

U of A Law Professor Jack Chin believes this ruling gives a very strong signal what SB 1070's final outcome will be when the state appeals.
