The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco issued a two-page order Friday, denying Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's request for an earlier hearing date.
U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton issued a ruling Wednesday, putting much of the law on hold. Brewer had asked for an expedited appeals process, with a hearing scheduled for the week of Sept. 13.
State lawyers had argued the appeal involves an issue of "significant importance" -- the state's right to implement a law to address "irreparable harm Arizona is suffering as a result of unchecked unlawful immigration."
