Cochise County man seeks reversal in ranch award to illegal immigrants

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A Cochise County man is looking for restitution since the passage of a new state law that prevents courts from awarding punitive damages to illegal immigrants.

Casey Nethercott will appear in a Bisbee courtroom Tuesday to ask a judge to vacate a 2005 judgement that gave his ranch to a pair of illegal immigrants as part of a civil suit.
