WND Strains to Find ‘Victory’ in Arpaio Lawsuit

WND Strains to Find ‘Victory’ in Arpaio Lawsuit December 12, 2014

Sheriff Joe scores victory against Obama’s amnesty! So reads the headline at the Worldnetdaily as they strain to find any little thing to celebrate. A victory, you say? Yeah, not so much. The “victory against Obama’s amnesty” is a motion for a briefing schedule in the case.

A judge has sided with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in the first clash in what is expected to be a major court fight over the legality – or not – of Barack Obama’s looming amnesty program, ordering a fast track for case arguments and hearings.

The announcement came on Wednesday from U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell in Washington, and granted a motion from Arpaio’s attorney, Larry Klayman of FreedomWatch, to move things along quickly.

Two Justice Department lawyers representing Obama in the fight had wanted their initial response delayed for weeks – for one thing because of the coming Christmas season.

But Howell ordered Obama to respond to Arpaio’s motion for a preliminary injunction – to protect the U.S. while the merits of the amnesty program are debated in court – by Dec. 15. A full preliminary injunction hearing is set for Dec. 22.

Wow. What a…victory. Go team, go.
