Arizona Republic:  “An attorney for the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office told a federal judge that the agency destroyed documents it should have retained as part of a racial-profiling lawsuit, opening the door for sanctions against Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s agency.  Tim Casey, an attorney representing Arpaio, admitted to U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow that deputies destroyed “stat sheets” generated in Arpaio’s controversial “crime suppression operations” and had also failed to retain thousands of emails, all of which the agency could have turned over to plaintiffs’ attorneys in the lawsuit.”
