Ortega v. Maricopa County, 16-16661

Affirmed a second supplemental injunction barring Maricopa County, Arizona, from racially profiling Latino drivers and passengers under the guise of enforcing federal and state immigration laws. In challenging the second supplemental injunction, which was issued after the sheriff's office violated an earlier one, the county argued that it was not authorized under Arizona law to fund compliance with the injunction or the related court-ordered victim compensation program. However, the Ninth Circuit rejected the county's arguments.
