District of Arizona
State of Arizona, et al.
Please briefly describe the dispute that gave rise to this lawsuit.
The plaintiff-appellee challenged the validity of Senate Bill 1070, as amended, an enactment of the Arizona Legislature signed into law by Governor Jan Brewer. The various provisions of Senate Bill 1070 provide for the cooperative enforcement of federal immigration laws by state and local government agencies in Arizona.

Briefly describe the procedural history, the result below, and the main issues on appeal.
Plaintiff-appellee filed its complaint on July 6, 2010, as well as a motion for preliminary injunction that sought to enjoin the enforcement of Senate Bill 1070. Defendants-appellants filed their response to the motion on July 20, 2010. The district court held oral argument on the motion on July 22, 2010. On July 28, 2010, the district court entered an order that granted in part and denied in part plaintiff-appellee's motion for preliminary injunction, and which enjoined certain provisions of Senate Bill 1070. Defendants-appellants filed their notice of appeal on July 29, 2010. The main issue on appeal is whether the district court relied on erroneous legal premises or abused its discretion in enjoining certain provisions of Senate Bill 1070.
Describe any proceedings remaining below or any related proceedings in other tribunals.
On July 26, 2010, defendants-appellants filed a motion to dismiss plaintiff's complaint. That motion remains pending before the district court. There are no other proceedings currently scheduled at this time. There are six related cases pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona that also challenge, in whole or in part, Senate Bill 1070. These proceedings include the following: Frisancho v. Brewer, et al., Case No. CV10-0926-PHX-SRB Escobar v. Brewer, et al., Case No. CV10-0249-TUC-SRB National Coalition of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders v. Arizona, et al., Case No. CV10-0943-PHX-SRB Salgado v.
