PHOENIX -- A federal judge in Phoenix has dismissed another challenge to Arizona's new immigration law.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Wednesday granted the state's motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed last July by the League of United Latin American Citizens.

LULAC sued over training materials distributed to Arizona law-enforcement meant to guide the implementation of the law, claiming the materials promoted racial and ethnic profiling.

Bolton ruled that LULAC's challenge lacked standing to pursue its claims and failed in proving to establish any real and immediate threat of harm.

Gov. Jan Brewer says of the eight federal lawsuits against the state, six have been entirely dismissed. Portions of the remaining two suits also been dismissed.

The federal government's lawsuit against Arizona on portions of Senate Bill 1070 remains at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.
