Court Will Rehear Phoenix New Times Lawsuit Against Joe Arpaio

Last week the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that it will rehear Phoenix New Times‘ lawsuit against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio:

In June, a three-member panel of the court upheld a lower court’s ruling that the lawsuit could proceed. However, it couldn’t target Arpaio and his former political comrade, disgraced former County Attorney Andrew Thomas, because their gigs as public officials granted them immunity from this sort of litigation … New Times appealed the ruling, requesting that the full court hear the case — and we won.
