Sheriff Joe Arpaio Racial Profiling Lawsuit
Oct. 17, 2013
In May, a federal judge ruled that Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s immigration enforcement efforts violated the constitutional rights of Latinos. The judge has now appointed a monitor to oversee efforts by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office to end what the court found to be a pattern of racial profiling. Kelly Flood, senior staff attorney for the ACLU of Arizona and Tom Liddy, one of the attorneys representing the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, discuss the ruling.
