I know, I know. What else did you expect from the 9th Circuit? (h/t Tammy Bruce)

Via Business Week:

Arizona’s appeal of a federal court ruling that blocks the central provisions of a state law requiring police to determine the immigration status of people stopped for questioning was set for November.

The U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco today denied Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s bid for an expedited hearing in September. State lawyers argued the earlier date was needed because parts of the law barred by the lower court addressed “serious criminal, environmental and economic problems” due to ineffective federal enforcement of immigration laws.

The Justice Department, which sued to block Arizona’s law, said the timetable proposed by the state would give it only two weeks to respond to briefs and not the four weeks allowed by court rules.

The schedule from here on out:

Arizona’s opening brief in the appeal is due Aug. 26, the government’s brief is due 28 days after the state’s, and no extensions will be granted unless there are “extraordinary and compelling circumstances,” the appeals court ruled. The court ordered its clerk’s office to schedule the hearing during the week of Nov. 1.
