Opponents seek more files in SB 1070 lawsuit

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Civil rights groups challenging Arizona's 2010 immigration law are asking a judge to force the law's chief sponsor to turn over more emails and documents.

The challengers say former state Sen. Russell Pearce has provided a limited set of documents, and that he hasn't searched hard enough for all records sought by a subpoena.

Pearce's lawyer says there was a problem with the subpoena and Pearce's response was more than adequate.

The lawsuit claims the law was passed with discriminatory intent.
