Phoenix New Times:  “U.S. District Judge Neil Wake is allowing a Chandler police officer Thomas Lovejoy’s lawsuit alleging rights violations to move forward in the latest blow to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  Lovejoy’s the over-worked officer who left his K-9 partner, Bandit, to die in a hot patrol car on August 11, 2007 and was later arrested and charged by the discredited law-enforcement duo of Arpaio and former County Attorney Andrew Thomas. Lovejoy claimed the whole thing was a sham, designed to pump up ratings for a sheriff obsessed with publicity.”
