Brewer, Goddard Spar Over SB 1070

Posted By on Sat, May 29, 2010 at 11:20 AM

The New York Times reports:

Gov. Jan Brewer has removed the state’s attorney general from defending Arizona’s controversial new immigration enforcement law, accusing him of colluding with the United States Justice Department as it weighs whether to challenge the law in court.

But the matter remained in dispute on Saturday, as the attorney general, Terry Goddard, said in an e-mail that “I am definitely defending the state” in legal challenges to the law.

Ms. Brewer, a Republican, said she took action after Mr. Goddard, a Democrat and her potential challenger for re-election, met Friday with Justice Department lawyers, who then met with her legal advisers.

Mr. Goddard, who has publicly stated that he opposes the law but has vowed to defend the state in court as its chief lawyer, said he told the Justice Department team that “we need solutions from Washington, not more lawsuits.”
