An Arizona man who claims behavioral health agency Horizon Human Services fired him to avoid paying health insurance bills for his ill infant son says the company has no grounds for its defamation suit against him.

In today’s picture, we see Mark Jenkins (L) and Blake Sutherland (R) debate their viewpoints about Arizona Senate Bill 1070, the controversial immigration bill ruled on by the Supreme Court today. The Court unanimously upheld the most controversial part of the ruling 8-0 (Justice Kagan abstained, presumably on grounds that she worked on the case before, as President Obama’s solicitor general). The ruling states police are authorized to check the immigration status of any person they stop, for any reason. However, the Court struck down three other major parts of the bill, all in 5-4 split decision. Justice Antonin Scalia gave a scathing dissenting response to the three parts of the bill that were decreed unconstitutional. Read more about the Supreme Court’s decision, and the potential fallout.
