     PHOENIX (AP) – A Wyoming man has given more than $1.5 million to
help defend Arizona’s controversial immigration enforcement measure
in court.
     The donation from Timothy Mellon of Saratoga brings to $3.6
million the total in donations to Gov. Jan Brewer’s legal defense
fund. Mellon could not immediately be reached for comment.
     The latest legal bills released Thursday show Brewer’s office
has spent more than $440,000 for the first two months of defending
the law.
     The bills, obtained through a public records request by The
Associated Press, are for work performed through June. They do not
cover July hearings in federal court before a judge temporarily
blocked enforcement of the law.
     Civil rights groups and the U.S. Justice Department have sued to
block the law.
