Wat up Arizona ?

As an Arizona rancher faced a court order earlier this year to pay $87,000 to illegal immigrants he caught on his land, the Legislature set out to right what many considered a wrong.

The Legislature passed a law to make retroactive to 2004 a 2006 referendum banning courts from awarding punitive damages to illegal immigrants.

But opponents of the law say it's unconstitutional. They say the Legislature lacks authority to overturn court decisions and that lawmakers can't pass a law to benefit only one person.
