When to expect a ruling on SB 1070?




Not today, at least. The U.S. Supreme Court is set to announce its opinion on Arizona's controversial 2010 anti-illegal immigration law before the end of this month, and eyes were on the court this morning as opinions were issued. But we'll have to keep waiting, at least a few days more, possibly longer.

This morning during a liveblog of other high court opinions as they were handed down, the legal experts at the SCOTUSblog predicted that the justices would be waiting until close to the end of the month, issuing the ruling June 27. But, as one noted, "it may not be quite as controversial as expected among the Justices, so Monday the 21st is a possibility."

That's not to say it can't come sooner. The court, which heard oral arguments in April on Arizona's challenge to the federal government's preemption claim, will issue more opinions this coming Thursday on cases heard this year, including on the fate of the Affordable Care Act.

In the meantime, a few good reads on SB 1070 news and what's to come:
