Judge Dismisses Lawsuit

Share this post

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a nonprofit group in Lake County against portions of Indiana's immigration law. US District Judge Jon DeGuilio ruled that the state officials, prosecutors and sheriffs who were being sued have no role in enforcing the portions of the law East Chicago-based Union Benefica Mexicana sought an injunction against.   The lawsuit challenged two parts of the law -- one that lets the state recoup unemployment benefits from employers who knowingly hire illegal or unauthorized workers, and a provision requiring workers seeking day-laborer jobs to submit specific forms and requiring police to submit a complaint to federal immigration authorities if they have probable cause to believe the forms have not been filled out.
