CA11 Blocks Two More Provisions of Alabama's HB56

"A federal appeals court Thursday blocked two sections of Alabama's immigration law, which is known as HB 56, in­cluding one that had been par tially enjoined by a U.S. Dis­trict Judge in Montgomery.  The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals enjoined Section 27 of the law, which forbids Alabama courts to enforce contracts be­tween unlawfully present aliens and parties who know their immigration status.  The appellate court also blocked Section 30 of the law, which forbids state and local agencies from doing business with undocumented aliens." - Montgomery Advertiser, Mar. 9, 2012.
