In a move that could finally end two controversial lawsuits on immigration, Gov. Doug Ducey on Friday ceded control over how to pursue the cases to Attorney General Mark Brnovich.

Gubernatorial press aide Daniel Scarpinato said it will be up to Brnovich whether to appeal a ruling earlier this month requiring Arizona to issue licenses to “dreamers.” A federal judge issued a permanent injunction voiding the state from enforcing a policy instituted by Jan Brewer, Ducey’s predecessor, denying access to licenses.

And Brnovich will decide whether to continue to defend the last remaining legal issue in the controversial 2010 Arizona law Brewer signed aimed at illegal immigration: the so-called “show-me-your-papers” provision.
