On May 9, 2011, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and Attorney General Tom Horne announced that they intend to make a direct appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court of the preliminary injunction granted by the U.S. District Court in Arizona to temporarily suspend enforcement of that state’s immigration law.

The decision to appeal comes in the wake of a 9th Circuit ruling in April that upheld the July 2010 preliminary injunction, and could pave the way for a precedent setting ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. Of course, the nation’s high court could also simply decline to rule at this time, deferring any review until after a full trial on the merits.
