Senator Pearce will share views on SB 1070

Posted: Updated:

The author of Arizona's new immigration law will not be a party in the state's appeal of the ruling that put parts of SB1070 on hold.

Instead the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of appeals will permit State Senator Russell Pearce to share his views only through a "friend of the court" brief, along with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The panel will hear the case November 1.
