Judge picked for records lawsuit against sheriff

A federal judge who is hearing a racial profiling lawsuit against the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office over its immigration patrols will also preside over the U.S. Justice Department’s lawsuit that seeks records from the Arizona police agency.

U.S. District Judge Murray Snow will preside over the Justice Department’s lawsuit that alleges the sheriff’s office refused to provide records in a civil rights investigation.

Snow was assigned the case by a random draw.
