So not only will the Eric Holder and the Justice Department be challenging SB 1070 in federal court, but the law may also be challenged in an international court (IACHR) with the participation of a group of elected officials from Arizona.

There may be precedent for something like this, but if there is I sure can’t think of it. Sure, there were a bunch of anti-war activists who would have loved to bring charges against the Bush Administration at The Hague, but I don’t remember any members of Congress signing up as parties to the complaint.
