Arizona Republic:  Miriam Mendiola-Martinez “sued the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and others claiming that county employees exhibited deliberate indifference to her medical needs and violated her constitutional rights against cruel and unusual punishment when they kept her shackled before and after her 2009 Caesarean section.  The lawsuit, as support for the woman’s claims, cites a recently released Justice Department report accusing the Sheriff’s Office of discrimination and Maricopa County’s struggles with maintaining accreditation in its jail health-care facilities.”
