The Alabama Immigration Law HB 56 is temporarily enjoined until September 29, 2011. Chief Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn issued a decision that states that it is in no way addressing the merits of the motions. The court will issue detailed Memorandum Opinions and Orders ruling on the merits of the pending Motions for Preliminary Injunction no later than September 28, 2011. This temporary injunction will remain in effect until September 29, 2011, or until the court enters its rulings, whichever comes first.
HB56 may not be executed or enforced in the mean time. Great initial news for our clients in Alabama!
