Court denies county's request for another hearing over decision in Arpaio's profiling case


PHOENIX — A federal appeals court has denied Maricopa County's request for another hearing over its decision to make the county a party in Sheriff Joe Arpaio's racial profiling case.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in mid-April that Arpaio's office was improperly named as a party in the case and instead substituted the county as a party.

Still, Arpaio was sued in his individual capacity and remains a party to the case.

The appeals court upheld a May 2013 ruling that concluded Arpaio's office had racially profiling of Latinos in its regular traffic and immigration patrols.

The sheriff is undergoing contempt-of-court proceedings in the profiling case for his acknowledged violation of a judge's orders.

Arpaio is seeking to disqualify the judge from the case.
