The lawyers relief ordinance

CV: The city of Hazleton will hold a special meeting Friday afternoon to vote on a revised illegal immigration ordinance. Council will convene at 4:15 p.m. for the first reading of two ordinances that will take the place of an ordinance passed in July. Advocacy groups and local attorneys filed a lawsuit against the original ordinance - which aimed to punish those who employ or rent to illegal immigrants and make English the city's official language.....

Once a new ordinance is passed, the plaintiffs suing the city will be permitted to amend their lawsuit and file for an injunction, according to a legal agreement between lawyers from both sides.

What a joy for all the attorneys involved. Endless litigation while billing by the hour. Somehow I get the feeling that Hazleton will drop this nonsense sometime after November 7.
