Federal Judge Thomas Thrash has reportedly enjoined parts of a Georgia law that was due to take effect on July 1, 2011. In granting a temporary injunction to complainants, he ruled that they were likely to prevail at trial on the claim that federal law preempts Georgia’s legislative action regarding police investigations.

The law, which was challenged by the Americans With Civil Liberties Union and other advocacy groups, authorized police to check the immigration status of criminal suspects and to hand over any undocumented individuals to federal immigration authorities for further action.
