<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The Arizona Supreme Court dealt Republican Gov. Jan Brewer a blow Thursday, overturning her decision to oust the chairwoman of the state's independent redistricting commission.

The Arizona Republic reported that the court found that Brewer's removal of Colleen Coyle Mathis did not meet state constitution guidelines.

"I was pleased with the order of the court," said State Rep. Matt Heinz (D-Tucson), who was in the courtroom for Thursday's hearing. "I believe it continues the independence of this constitutional branch of government, the independent commission. The attempt of the Republican caucus to hijack the independence of this commission was ghastly."

It is nice to see a state constitution prevail. Let's hope our USCON will prevail against ObamaCare.
