Sorry, but there are just so many snappy titles I can come up with.
I’ve been building a house today, installing windows, framing doors, and doing siding prep along with some volunteers from Michelin down the road. I’ve plowed through my emails, and checked the Court docket. Not really very much.
Sharon Rondeau at the Post & Email has made a big deal about a new attorney making an appearance for the Plaintiffs, James B Chanin, who was admitted pro hac vice yesterday. She seems worried about the expense to the County, and seems to be confused about exactly who is paying for Arpaio’s criminal defense attorney (hint: not the County). There is an interesting note at the end of her article clearing up some confusion about the Court-Appointed Monitor’s contract, contradicting earlier claims that the cost of that contract had grown precipitously.
Today Judge show issued an order (ECF 1518) that appears to relate to the criminal investigation of Mr. Mackiewicz, and what material should be redacted to protect his rights. Certain exhibits will not be sealed. I think this order is pursuant to a teleconference held this morning at 10 AM.
Finally, if I have my dates right, Mike Zullo has until noon tomorrow to file a reply to Plaintiff’s response to his motion for a protection order for some of the documents that have been subpoenaed by the Plaintiffs’ attorneys.
