DOJ crys fowl on expedited appeal request for AZ law

What a bunch of jerk-offs. They rush through their request for a hearing on AZ SB1070 then cry fowl when those appealing the initial finding do the same.
Arizona has requested that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals set an expedited briefing schedule which would have the case fully briefed in just over one month. This is about half the time normally allotted for briefing in appeals from a preliminary injunction.

The U.S. Department of Justice has just filed an opposition to the motion, arguing that the regular schedule should be followed, which would not have the case fully briefed until October 7, 2010. DOJ stated that it did not want its usual 28 day time period shortened, even if Arizona shortened its own time for briefing.
Y'all better learn how this stuff works.
