Lawyers in profiling case can't agree on monitor

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -

Lawyers in the racial profiling case against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office were unable to agree on a recommended candidate to monitor the agency's operations to ensure it isn't making unconstitutional arrests.

Instead, attorneys on both sides each recommended three candidates.

U.S. District Judge Murray Snow will use the list of recommended prospects to select a monitor for Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office to ensure it's complying with constitutional requirements and oversee the re-training of deputies.

Six months ago, Snow ruled Arpaio's office systematically singled out Latinos in its trademark immigration patrols.

It marked the first finding by a court that the agency racially has profiled people.

Arpaio's office has appealed the racial profiling finding and the subsequent ruling that ordered the appointment of a monitor.
