The state is paying approximately $77,000 to private lawyers for the first 12 days of work defending Arizona's new immigration enforcement law.

An invoice obtained Friday by The Associated Press through a public records request says attorneys for a Phoenix law firm billed for 240.8 hours of work from May 20-30.

Brewer refused to allow Attorney General Terry Goddard participate in the state's defense of the law. Instead, she invoked a provision of the law that allowed her to hire private lawyers.

The governor set up a fund for donations to pay for the legal work, and Brewer's office reports that it had received contributions more than $1.2 million by Thursday.
