A political feud among county officials in metro Phoenix that led to a spate of costly lawsuits and unsuccessful public-corruption investigations against some participants in the disputes has cost taxpayers $38 million.
The Justice Department, which first targeted Sheriff Joe Arpaio four years ago in his suspected mishandling of illegal immigrants arrested in the Phoenix area, filed a civil lawsuit in federal court Thursday accusing the sheriff and his office using "unconstitutional and unlawful actions" in their handling of Hispanics.
The Justice Department, which first targeted Sheriff Joe Arpaio four years ago over his handling of illegal immigrants arrested in the Phoenix area, filed a civil lawsuit in federal court Thursday accusing the sheriff and his office of "unconstitutional and unlawful actions" against Hispanics.
Arpaio aide Jack MacIntyre said there are no systematic constitutional problems remaining within the jails and that the county's jail system can address any problems that pop up here and there.
"We are operating a constitutionally fair detention system," MacIntyre said.
