Lawyers want settlement talks in profiling lawsuit

Attorneys who alleged in a lawsuit that Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies racially profiled Latinos in their immigration sweeps have asked a federal judge to appoint a mediator to try to resolve the case.

In a filing made public this week, the attorneys asked U.S. District Judge Murray Snow to appoint a magistrate to hold settlement talks.

The sheriff’s office declined to say whether it would take part in such talks. Tim Casey, the sheriff’s attorney in the case, didn’t return a call seeking comment Tuesday.

The judge suggested in March that attorneys on both sides explore settling the lawsuit.

The sheriff denies allegations of racial profiling.

  1. YES YES THE ALMIGHTY RACIAL CARD ,,OBUMA KNOWS IT WELL ,AND WHERE IT CAN’T APPLY USE THE MORAL CARD IN HIS SEARCH FOR THE COMMY LAND…

  2. If they want to attempt to resolve the issue through mediation that can only mean that they realize they don’t have a leg to stand on.

  3. I, pray to the lord that the State don’t settle anything, let’s go all the way
