Arizona Republic:  “A Maricopa County Superior Court judge has imposed financial sanctions against a Phoenix law firm that represented Sheriff Joe Arpaio and former County Attorney Andrew Thomas in legal disputes with the county’s governing board, judges and others.  Judge John Buttrick ordered the sanctions earlier this week against Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C. for failing to appear for depositions and for failing to produce to the county its file for the legal advice that it performed for the county’s Air Quality Department.”
