Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's office has filed a motion to dismiss another lawsuit that seeks to overturn the state's new immigration law.

Brewer says the legal papers filed by her defense team Friday evening asks a federal judge to throw out the suit by the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups that challenge the law's constitutionality.

The law takes effect July 29 and requires officers to question a person's immigration status if there's a reasonable suspicion that he or she is in the country illegally.

At least five legal challenges have been filed to the law since April.

The lawsuits generally allege that Arizona's law will lead to racial profiling and argue that it's the federal government's responsibility to regulate immigration.
