Monday marks deadline in racial profiling case

JLawyers in the racial profiling case against the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office face a Monday deadline for recommending who should be appointed to monitor the agency’s operations to ensure it isn’t making unconstitutional arrests.

The recommendations are being made to U.S. District Judge Murray Snow, who will ultimately select a monitor for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office.

Attorneys on both sides were asked to agree on a candidate for the post.

If lawyers can’t agree on a prospect, each side must recommend three candidates for the job.

Snow concluded in a May ruling that the agency has systematically singled out Latinos in its immigration patrols and that deputies unreasonably prolonged the detentions of people who were pulled over.

Arpaio’s office is appealing the ruling and opposed the appointment of a monitor.
