Court Has No Ban on Terms Like ‘Illegal Aliens’

AP, November 10, 2008


A court spokeswoman [for Arizona’s supreme court] says there has been no ban on words, nor is Chief Justice Ruth McGregor considering one.

Arizona Supreme Court communications director Cari Gerchick says McGregor gave top judicial officials statewide the request to let them know of the concerns of the Phoenix-based Los Abogados Hispanic Bar Association.


But Gerchick said there was no subliminal message. She says McGregor issues policy decisions only through administrative orders, and there is no administrative order on the issue.
