Lawyers for Sheriff Joe Arpaio will appeal a judge's October order that a court-appointed monitor oversee the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, among other things.
A federal judge in Phoenix ruled in May that the sheriff's office and Arpaio singled out Latinos and that deputies unreasonably prolonged detentions.
In October, the judge ordered the appointment of an independent monitor and a community advisory board to ensure compliance with constitutional requirements.
Arpaio's lawyers in a motion filed this week say they will appeal the order.
The May ruling came after a small group of Latinos sued the sheriff's office for violating their constitutional rights, saying they were being detained simply because of their race.
Arpaio's office had opposed the appointment of a monitor, arguing it would undermine his authority.
District 5 Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox, city council candidate Warren Stewart and some community leaders plan to voice their concerns on an appeal, saying it will cost Maricopa County taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. The event is at 5 p.m. Friday at El Portal Restaurant at 117 W. Grant St. in Phoenix.
