Lawyers in the racial profiling case against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office are criticizing their rivals' recommended candidates to monitor the agency's operations to ensure it isn't making unconstitutional arrests.
A week ago, 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.
His office has appealed the racial profiling finding and the subsequent ruling that ordered the appointment of a monitor.
