Deadline extended for Arpaio to hand over e-mails

A federal judge hearing a lawsuit over the immigration patrols by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office has agreed to extend the agency’s deadline for handing over e-mails about the patrols.

U.S. District Judge Murray Snow granted the request by the sheriff’s office to change the deadline from June 11 to Aug. 11.

Attorneys who filed the lawsuit alleging racial profiling had sought e-mails about the patrols, but some e-mails were deleted through what the agency says was an unintentional error.

Some deleted e-mails may be recovered, because Maricopa County had backed up e-mails by the agency as part of an unrelated lawsuit.

A sheriff’s lawyer wanted the deadline extended because the e-mails are taking longer than expected to review.
