CASE ENTRY

Melendres v. Maricopa Cty.

District court issues injunction to Maricopa County, Ariz. sheriff’s office, under the leadership of Joe Arpaio, to stop racially profiling Latino drivers—which the sheriff’s office comprehensively violates while deliberately withholding evidence from the court. So the district court issues another, more comprehensive injunction—which, per the Ninth Circuit, it had every right to do.
