Bolton, a former state court judge appointed to the federal bench in 2000 by President Bill Clinton, will decide whether to block Arizona's sweeping new immigration law, which requires police, while enforcing other laws, to question a person's immigration status if officers have a reasonable suspicion that the person is in the country illegally.

A federal judge on Tuesday dismissed one of the seven lawsuits
that seek to overturn Arizona's new immigration law.
U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton says the lawsuit by
Washington-based researcher Roberto Frisancho didn't allege an
injury that was concrete and not based on speculation.
Frisancho alleged that as U.S.-born Hispanic he would likely be
asked during an upcoming research trip to Arizona for immigration
papers based on a suspicion that he's in the country illegally.
Gov. Jan Brewer and Attorney General Terry Goddard sought the
dismissal of Frisancho's lawsuit.
Last month, Bolton put the law's most controversial elements on
hold in a case filed by the U.S. Justice Department.
The other six lawsuits remain alive.
