"A federal judge in Alabama has temporarily blocked a controversial state law that is designed to sharply curtail illegal immigration in the state. The ruling was released early Monday afternoon, three days before the law, considered one of the most expansive in the United States, was scheduled to go into effect. Judge Sharon L. Blackburn said the courts need at least a month 'to adequately address the numerous challenges' to the law and that the injunction will remain in effect until Sept. 29, 'or until the court enters its ruling, whichever comes first.'"
