6

detaining and transporting individuals in violation of the Courts injunction . . . .


13.

7
8
9

Disputed. Plaintiffs did raise issues relating to violation of the

Courts orders (and implicitly, of contempt) when they first became aware of the press
releases, by writing a letter to Defendants about the press releases and seeking

10
11

assurances that violations of the injunction were not occurring. Dkt. 843-2 at 4-5.
14.

15
16

matter of law, that the MCSO has violated the explicit terms of this Courts

17

preliminary injunction set forth in its December 23, 2011 order because the MCSO

18

continues to follow the LEAR policy and the LEAR policy violates the preliminary

19

injunction.

20
21
22
23
24

16.

February 12, 2015.

3
4

Not Disputed. The Court issued its Order to Show Cause on

20.

Plaintiffs are without knowledge sufficient to confirm or deny this

21.

Not Disputed. Chief Sands testified that, shortly after the

statement.

5
6
7

Preliminary Injunction was issued, there was a meeting about the injunction at Sheriff

Arpaios office at which both Chief Deputy Sheridan and Sheriff Arpaio were present.

Apr. 21, 2015 Tr. 260:9-16.

10
22.

11

Disputed because materially incomplete. Sergeant Trowbridge

12

testified that shortly after the preliminary injunction issued, there was a meeting about

13

the injunction at Sheriff Arpaios office at which Chief Deputy Sheridan, Sheriff

14

Arpaio, and Chief Sands were present, along with Lisa Allen and anybody that

15
16

worked for Lisa Allen, as well as counsel for MCSO. Apr. 22, 2015 Tr. 437:1-438:4.
23.

17
18
19

Disputed because the statement mischaracterizes the nature of the

evidence cited in support as dispositive of Chief Deputy Sheridans actual recollection.


Chief Deputy Sheridan testified that he could not recall being at a meeting about the

20
21

Preliminary Injunction at which both he and Sheriff Arpaio were present, 897:21-

22

898:17, and additional documents may further refresh the witnesss memory. Further,

23

both Sands and Plaintiffs are without knowledge regarding Chief Deputy Sheridans

24

actual ability to recall whether he attended a meeting regarding the Preliminary

25
26
27
28

Injunction.
24.

Disputed because the statement is incomprehensible as written,

because the statement mischaracterizes the cited testimony, and because additional
4

Case 2:07-cv-02513-GMS Document 1333 Filed 09/11/15 Page 7 of 21

documents may further refresh the witnesss memory. Further, both Sands and

Plaintiffs are without knowledge regarding Sheriff Arpaios actual ability to recall a

meeting about the Preliminary Injunction.

25.

Disputed because the statement mischaracterizes the nature of the

5
6

evidence cited in support as dispositive of Sheriff Arpaios and Chief Deputy

Sheridans actual ability to recall facts about the distribution of the Courts Preliminary

Injunction Order or the meetings and discussions they had about it, additional

documents may further refresh the witnesses memories, and Sheriff Arpaios and

10
11

Chief Deputy Sheridans self-serving testimony in a contempt proceeding provides

12

both Sands and Plaintiffs with insufficient basis upon which to evaluate these

13

contemnors actual recall of the events in question.

14

26.

Disputed. Sands testified that Lieutenant Sousa was assigned the

15
16

task of preparing the training materials, and that Sands believed Sousa would carry out

17

that task without any need for follow-up from SandsSands did not testify that he

18

(Sands) assigned this task to Lieutenant Sousa. Apr. 22, 2015 Tr. 334:11-18.

19

27.

Disputed. The emails that surfaced about the development of

20
21

training scenarios are equivocal with respect to the identity of the individual who

22

ordered the training to be developed, in that they indicate that Lieutenant Sousa asked

23

that training be developed but do not suggest that Sands ordered Sousa to develop the

24

training scenarios. See, e.g., CaseySub 000003 (Exhibit 1) (Sousa orders Brett Palmer

25
26
27
28

to develop training scenarios); CaseySub 000046-49 (Exhibit 2) (same).


28.

Not Disputed. The emails show Lieutenant Sousas efforts to try

to develop training.
5

Case 2:07-cv-02513-GMS Document 1333 Filed 09/11/15 Page 8 of 21

29.

Disputed because the statement mischaracterizes the nature of the

evidence cited in support as dispositive of the witnesses actual frame of mind or

ability to recall facts regarding the training, as compared to their willingness to testify

about their recollections at a contempt hearing. Furthermore, the final state of any

5
6
7
8
9

witnesss memory remains unclear because additional documents may further refresh
the witnesses memories.
30.

Disputed because the statement mischaracterizes the nature of the

evidence cited in support as dispositive of the actual state of Lieutenant Sousas

10
11

memory, and additional documents may further refresh the witnesss memory. The

12

cited testimony provides both Sands and Plaintiffs with insufficient basis upon which

13

to evaluate the witnesss actual recall of the events in question.

14

31.

Disputed because the statement mischaracterizes the nature of the

15
16

evidence cited in support as dispositive of the actual state of Lieutenant Sousas

17

memory, and additional documents may further refresh the witnesss memory. The

18

cited testimony provides both Sands and Plaintiffs with insufficient basis upon which

19

to evaluate the witnesss actual recall of the events in question.

20
21

32.

Disputed because the statement mischaracterizes the nature of the

22

evidence cited in support as dispositive of the actual state of Lieutenant Sousas

23

memory, and additional documents may further refresh the witnesss memory. The

24

cited testimony provides both Sands and Plaintiffs with insufficient basis upon which

25
26
27
28

to evaluate the witnesss actual recall of the events in question.


33.

Disputed because the statement mischaracterizes the nature of the

evidence cited in support as dispositive of the actual state of Sergeant Palmers


6

Case 2:07-cv-02513-GMS Document 1333 Filed 09/11/15 Page 9 of 21

memory, and additional documents may further refresh the witnesss memory. The

cited testimony provides both Sands and Plaintiffs with insufficient basis upon which

to evaluate the witnesss actual recall of the events in question.

34.

Not Disputed. The Courts Preliminary Injunction was issued on

5
6

December 23, 2011. Order, Dec. 23, 2011. Dkt. 494.


35.

7
8
9

Not Disputed. More than three years elapsed between the date the

Courts Preliminary Injunction was filed and Plaintiffs Request for an Order to Show
Cause was filed.

10
36.

11

Not Disputed. The MCSO has a record in this case of inadequate

12

document retention. See Order Denying Motion for Recusal or Disqualification at

13

21:11-14, Jul. 10, 2015. Dkt. 1164.

14

37.

Plaintiffs are without knowledge sufficient to confirm or deny this

15
16
17
18
19

statement, including knowledge of the avenues available to Sands to seek documents


from MCSO.
38.

Disputed. MCSO has thus far only identified eight documents on

its initial privilege log in response to Sands document requests, but more documents

20
21

may arise and be logged, as MCSO continues to produce, review, and log documents.

22

See, e.g., Transcript, Sept. 4, 2014 Status Conference (forthcoming) at 11:6-13:9; 15:9-

23

32:6 (discussing status of production and disputes relating to documents not yet

24

produced by Defendants).

25
26
27

39.

Not Disputed. After being directed to by the Court, Defendants

located and identified additional, relevant emails. March 27, 2015 Tr. 32:16-21.

28
7

Case 2:07-cv-02513-GMS Document 1333 Filed 09/11/15 Page 10 of 21

40.

Not Disputed. After witnesses testified about undisclosed emails,

the Court directed individuals computers searched, and depositions had to be

reopened, additional relevant emails were discovered.

41.

Disputed. Sands testified that Lieutenant Sousa was assigned the

5
6

task of preparing the training materials, and that Sands believed Sousa would carry out

that task without any need for follow-up from SandsSands did not testify that he

(Sands) assigned this task to Lieutenant Sousa. Apr. 22, 2015 Tr. 334:11-18. The

emails that surfaced about the development of training scenarios are equivocal with

10
11

respect to the identity of the individual who ordered the training to be developed, in

12

that they indicate that Lieutenant Sousa asked that training be developed but do not

13

suggest that Sands ordered Sousa to develop the training scenarios. See, e.g., CaseySub

14

000003 (Exhibit 1) (Sousa orders Brett Palmer to develop training scenarios);

15
16

CaseySub 000046-49 (Exhibit 2) (same).


42.

17
18
19

Disputed. Tim Casey has produced emails, including at least some

of the emails sent to him by Lieutenant Sousa. See, e.g., CaseySub 000046-49 (Exhibit
2).

20
43.

21

Plaintiffs are without knowledge sufficient to confirm or deny this

22

statement, as the cited testimony states that Sands retired in July of 2013, which may

23

or may not indicate a July 31, 2013 retirement date.

24

44.

Plaintiffs are without knowledge sufficient to confirm or deny this

25
26

statement.

27
28
8

Case 2:07-cv-02513-GMS Document 1333 Filed 09/11/15 Page 11 of 21

45.

Not Disputed. One of Plaintiffs original causes of action in this

case was that MCSOs officers detention of persons based on knowledge that such

persons were in the country illegally, without more, violated the Fourth Amendment.

46.

Not Disputed. The detention of persons based on knowledge that

5
6
7

such persons were in the country illegally, without more, violates both the Fourth
Amendment and the Preliminary Injunction.

8
9

47.

Not Disputed. Plaintiffs seek compensatory relief for violations of

the Preliminary Injunction that occurred when MCSO officers detained members of

10
11
12

the Plaintiff class based on knowledge that such persons were in the country illegally,
without more.

13
14

48.

Not Disputed. The Courts October 2, 2013 Order was a final

judgment on the merits. See Order at 58:23-24, Oct. 2, 2013. Dkt. 606.

15
49.

16

Disputed. This fact is not complete. Violations of the Preliminary

17

Injunction arose out of MCSOs continued application of the LEAR policy as well as

18

out of other grounds, not all of which are presently known, given the ongoing

19

discovery, document production, and contempt proceedings. See, e.g., Dkt. 880 at 9-

20
21
22
23
24

18.
50.

Not Disputed. After the Preliminary Injunction was issued, the

legality of the LEAR policy was actually litigated.


51.

Not Disputed. The Court found that the LEAR policy violated

25
26
27

both the Fourth Amendment and its Preliminary Injunction.


52.

Not Disputed. The Court granted Plaintiffs relief.

28
9

Case 2:07-cv-02513-GMS Document 1333 Filed 09/11/15 Page 12 of 21

53.

Disputed. Plaintiffs were impeded in their pursuit of contempt

findings against Sands and others because of Defendants material misstatements,

including those made by their counsel Tim Caseys denial of any violation in October

2012. A finding of contempt and the scope of sanctions commensurate with the still-

5
6

unknown scope of the contempt could not have been raised before the clarity gained

through Defendants statements (through counsel) at the November 2014 status

hearing, which led to Plaintiffs January 2015 motion for an OSC. See, e.g., Dkt. 804,

Nov. 20, 2014 Tr. at 67-68; Dkt. 843-2 at 4-5, 13-16.

10

12

Additional Facts Establishing a Genuine Issue of Material Fact or


Otherwise Precluding Judgment in Favor of the Moving Party
1.

Sands testified that he retired in July of 2013 after approximately

13
14
15
16
17

30 years working at the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office. Apr. 21, 2015 Tr. 255:3-14;
320:17-19.
2.

Prior to retirement, as Executive Chief of MCSO, Sands took

direction from Sheriff Arpaio, including direction relating to saturation patrols. Dkt.

18
19
20
21
22

579 at 52 (citing Trial Tr. at 707:16-18, 809:20-810:3, 814:21-815:1, 824:24-825:6);


id. at 53 n.46 (citing Tr. 797:15-20, 797:24-798:15); Apr. 22, 2015 Tr. 346:9-13.
3.

In 2011, while he was Chief of Enforcement, three bureau

commanders reported to Sands: one relating to patrol operations, one relating to

23
24

investigative operations, and one relating to training, records and ID, and civil and

25

criminal warrants. Apr. 22, 2015 Tr. 255:3-10, 321:13-20. Though Chief David

26

Trombi reported to Sands, Sands and Trombi both supervised the Human Smuggling

27

Unit (HSU). Dkt. 579 at 8; Apr. 22, 2015 Tr. 345:4-23, 356:8-9. See also Apr. 21,

28

testimony).

4.

While at MCSO, Sands was involved in MCSOs decision-

making process surrounding how to put the preliminary injunction into effect. For

5
6

instance, Sands testified that shortly after the Court issued its preliminary injunction,

he discussed implementation of the preliminary injunction with at least Sheriff Arpaio,

Chief Deputy Sheridan, Tim Casey (counsel for MCSO, see Apr. 21, 2015 Tr. 107:11-

14), Deputy Chief MacIntyre, and Lieutenant Sousa. Apr. 21, 2015 Tr. 256:16-257:12,

10
11

258:23-261:24, 262:13-264:11. A November 6, 2014 email from Tim Casey states that

12

Sands was our (i.e., litigation counsels) point of primary contact in this case at that

13

time and that Sands was handling this Order. CaseySub 000050-53 (Exhibit 3) at

14

CaseySub 000050. Other documents suggest that Sands was the final authority to

15
16

approve communications regarding implementation of the preliminary injunction

17

order. MELC834972-73 (Exhibit 4) (June 7, 2012 email from Lisa Allen to Brian

18

Sands and his assistant Jenise Moreno, bearing subject line Janice make sure [Chief]

19

Sands sees and reviews this and returns his approval or corrections to Chris Hegstrom

20
21

by Friday (tomorrow), and containing draft answers to questions regarding MCSO

22

immigration enforcement practices); see also MELC837097-98 (Exhibit 5) (email

24

asked me to forward these questions to you for a brief response), MELC837095-96

25
26
27

(Exhibit 6) (Sousas email providing his draft answers to Allen). Still other documents
suggest Sands also had chain of command authority over training relating to the

28

(Order Setting Trial) at 1; see also 2012 trial transcripts. The Court issued Findings of

Fact and Conclusions of Law on May 24, 2013. Dkt. 579. The Courts findings

included findings that MCSO had violated the preliminary injunction because MCSO

continues to follow the LEAR policy and the LEAR policy violates the injunction. Id.

Casey responded by letter dated October 18, 2012, assuring

Plaintiffs that violations of the preliminary injunction were not occurring. Dkt. 843-2
at 13-16. However, Plaintiffs were concerned about the reliability of the information,

and raised the violation of the LEAR policy to Defendants counsel on October 11,
2012. Dkt. 843-2 at 4-5 (A1-A2).

The Court held a status conference on November 20, 2014. Dkt.

804 (unsealed transcript of Nov. 20, 2014 proceedings). At that hearing, Defendants

admitted to the Court and the parties, for the first time, that MCSO had failed to

comply with the preliminary injunction order by conducting a traffic stop (the Korean

5
6

stop) on November 1, 2012, as part of an interdiction patrol of the type prohibited by

the preliminary injunction. Id. at 67-68. Defendants also revealed that no one at MCSO

had disseminated information about the December 23, 2011 preliminary injunction

order to the rank-and-file. Id. at 67:20-22 (MCSO has concluded, that this Courts

10
11

order was not communicated to the line troops in the HSU.).

Plaintiffs filed a motion for an Order to Show Cause on January 8,

2015, less than two months after the November status conference. That motion was
granted on February 12, 2015. Dkts. 843, 880. Plaintiffs do not dispute the fact recited

15
16

in 4 of Sands Statement of Facts. However, Plaintiffs also cited other violations

17

relating to the LEAR policy and noted that there are likely other incidents of

18

violations not known to Plaintiffs. Dkt. 843 at 6-8, 12.

The district court commenced contempt hearings in April 2015,

20
21

acknowledging during the hearing that when it noted the existence of preliminary

22

injunction violations in its May 24, 2013 Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, it

23

was not aware of the vast scope of those violations. Apr. 22, 2015 Tr. 303:7-16; see

Fed. R. Civ. P. 56(d) Declaration of Unavailable Facts


The following unavailable facts are essential to the opposition to Sands motion

for summary judgment.

12
13

1.

Contempt proceedings relating to Sands and other contemnors

14

began on April 21, 2015 and are scheduled to continue on September 22, 2015. Dkt.

15

1025 (civil minutes); Dkt. 1208 at 2 (setting hearing dates in September-November

16

2015 for resumed contempt hearing). Evidence, including documents and videos not

17
18

produced to Plaintiffs prior to the 2012 trial or the 2013 rulings and witness testimony

19

obtained with reference to those documents, was available for consideration at the

20

April 2015 hearing dates and yet more evidence unavailable at trial and produced or

21

obtained since the April 2015 hearing dates, will be available to the parties at the

22
23
24
25
26

resumed hearing dates. See, e.g., Dkts. 1203, 1208 at 2-3; Aug. 28, 2015 Tr. at 22:1523, 33:11-34:13 (regarding ongoing productions by Defendants).
2.

Numerous documents bearing on the scope of violation of the

preliminary injunction order have been produced by Defendants since the May 24,

27
28

2013 Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law were entered, including documents
14

Case 2:07-cv-02513-GMS Document 1333 Filed 09/11/15 Page 17 of 21

predating Sands retirement, and still more documents predating Sands retirement

may yet be produced, since Defendants have not completed their obligations to

produce all documents the Court has deemed relevant to the contempt proceedings.

See, e.g., Dkt. 1203, Dkt. 1208; Aug. 21, 2015 Tr. 12:6-16:19 (regarding Defendants

5
6

ongoing document productions; and extending deadline to produce, on a rolling basis,

nonprivileged .pst files); see also Dkts. 1255, 1258 (Defendants Aug. 20, 2015 and

Aug. 21, 2015 notices of document production).

3.

The documents and evidence produced by Defendants since the

10
11

2013 final judgment may be relevant to grounds for a finding of contempt by Sands.

12

See, e.g., Aug. 21, 2015 Tr. 13:5-16:19. For example, documents relating to MCSOs

13

internal affairs investigation relating to the violation of the preliminary injunction

14

order (IA 14-0543) were ordered produced. Dkt. 1208 at 3, 6. The documents

15
16

produced thus far encompass events in which Sands participated prior to his

17

retirement. See, e.g., internal affairs investigation file IA 14-0543 (MELC-IA013767-

18

20744) (Attorneys Eyes Only) (excerpts attached as Exhibit 8, lodged under seal:

19

MELC-IA013767-71, MELC-IA013830-915). The IA 14-0543 investigation included

20
21

an interview of Sands, and interviews of other individuals regarding Sands role in

22

implementing the preliminary injunction. Id., e.g. at MELC-IA013832-33 (summary of

23

investigative tasks), MELC-IA013843-47 (summary of interview with Sands). And

24

other documents produced in August 2015 include .pst files reflecting the content of

25
26

email sent to, from, or about Sands. See, e.g., MELC678450 (Exhibit 9), produced on

27

4.

Discovery responses provided by Defendants on April 14, 2015

revealed that on December 26, 2011 Tim Casey conferred with Sands for
approximately 15-20 minutes, and again conferred with Sands and Lieutenant Joseph

15

20
21
22
23
24

e.g., Dkt. 1094 at 4-8; Dkt. 1045 at 1-8.


5.

Plaintiffs have not completed their depositions of Sands and other

MCSO witnesses in relation to the newly-produced evidence. See, e.g., Dkt. 1296

Putting out training reference the court order
Order re MSJ 122311.pdf

Bret,
Per our phone conversation write up a couple of scenarios (right way and wrong way) based
on Judge Snows order to MCSO and your conversations with Tim Casey. I will have Tim review what
you write up and have Chief Sands sign off on it. Once all that is done we will get with training
reference putting something out in E-Learning.

Judge Snows order:

The Court is enjoining the MCSO "from detaining any person based solely on knowledge,
without more, that the person is in the country without unlawful authority. To be clear, the Court is not
enjoing MCSO from enforcing valid state laws, or detaining invidudals when officer have reasonable
suspicion that individuals are violating a state criminal law. Instead, it is enjoing MCSO from violating
federal, rights protected by the United States Constitution in the process of enforcing valid state law
based on an incorrect understanding of the law.: p. 37-38.
(See attached for full ruling).

Thanks,

Joe

Subject: RE: Putting out training reference the court order

Lt. SousaBelow is my rough construction of an eLeaming segment based on Judge Snow's order. I constructed this in
accordance with the many conversations you & I have had, as well as taking into account the information
conveyed to us both from Tim Casey concerning Judge Snow's order. Also, in accordance with my own personal
experience in this matter, I think it is imperative that Tim Casey review this and any training material I arn asked
to create that could be used to instruct Deputies in this very sensitive area. Also note, I created these scenarios
with Patrol Deputies as the focus.

Training Directive
Maricopa County Deputies in a wide range of assignments could come across individuals through their lawful
contacts whom they suspect through reasonable suspicion of being illegal aliens in the United States. It is
important the Deputies and the Supervisors understand the scope to which they are empowered to act in these
scenarios, as limits have recently been set by Judge Murray Snow in a Federal court case. The order issued by
Judge Snow states that MCSO cannot detain any person based solely on the suspicion they are an illegal alien
present in the United States. What this means is that any Deputy who has contact with a person and during the
contact, the Deputy arrives at the reasonable suspicion through articulable indicators that the person may be an
illegal alien in the United States, cannot and will not detain or further the detainment of this person without having
more than just this singular suspicion.
The most common articulable indicators giving rise to the reasonable suspicion that a person may be an illegal
alien in the United States are:
1) The person speaks no English or difficult/broken English
2) The person has no form of ID or no form of ID issued by the United States.
2

CaseySub 000046

Case 2:07-cv-02513-GMS Document 1333-1 Filed 09/11/15 Page 5 of 45

Scenario I
A Patrol Deputy working at 2AM is patrolling a residential area known to have been hit recently with car
burglaries. The Deputy comes across an adult male walking in the area and decides to make contact. The Deputy
quickly finds this person speaks no English and the only ID he has is a Mexico Driver License issued by
Mexico. After talking with this person for several minutes, the Deputy determines there is no crime being
committed under state law, but the Deputy reasonably believes based on the two indicators listed above that this
person may be an illegal alien in the United States. DO NOT DETAIN- The Deputy has no other articulable
indicators to show a crime ha's, is, or is about to be committed under state law. The Deputy cannot detain based
solely on the reasonable suspicion this person may be an illegal alien. In this scenario, the Deputy should end his
contact and allow the person to continue on their way.

Scenario 2
A Patrol Deputy conducts a traffic stop on a vehicle for speeding. The Deputy fmds the vehicle is occupied by
four adult male subjects. The driver speaks only Spanish and provides a valid Arizona driver license as his ID. As
a matter of good policing practice, the Deputy asks for lD from the three passengers. All three passengers provide
Mexico Consular Cards issued by the Mexican Consulate as lD (not a U.S. ID). All three passengers speak only
Spanish. Within about 15 minutes, the Deputy has determined no criminal offense has, is or is about to be
committed. The only violation is the civil speeding. However, the Deputy does reasonably believe based on the
two indicators listed above that the three passengers may be illegal aliens in the United States. DO NOT DETAIN
- The Deputy has no articulable indicators of a crime under state law. The Deputy cannot detain based solely on
the reasonable suspicion these passengers may be illegal aliens. In this scenario, the Deputy should use their
discretion to issue either a written citation or a verbal warning to the driver and release the vehicle with all of the
occupants.

Scenario 3
A Patrol Deputy conducts a traffic stop on a vehicle for expired registration. The Deputy fmds the vehicle is
occupied by an adult male driver and an adult male passenger. The driver speaks only Spanish and presents an
expired California Driver License as ID. The passenger speaks only Spanish and presents a Mexico Voter
Registration Card as ID (not a U.S. ID). The fact that the passenger does not speak English and has no form of
U.S. ID causes the Deputy to reasonably believe the passenger may be an illegal alien in the United States. During
the traffic stop investigation, the Deputy discovers the passenger is in possession of an open alcohol container
and has been consuming alcohol out of that container while riding in the vehicle. In this scenario, there are two
aspects to consider ... With respect to the driver, the Deputy should write the driver a civil citation for expired
registration and driving with an expired driver license. The driver should ultimately be released after being issued
the citation. While the driver speaks only Spanish, he did present a valid form ofU.S.lD. It does not matter that
the ID was expired. The expired California license is still a valid form of U.S. ID. There is no reasonable
suspicion the driver is an illegal alien. With respect to the passenger, the Deputy should write a criminal citation
to the passenger for the Title Four violation. While in the course of writing both citations, the Deputy can
simultaneously place a phone call to ICE to advise them of his suspicion that the passenger may be an illegal alien
in the U.S. IfiCE clearly instructs the Deputy to detain the passenger for subsequent tum over to an ICE facility
or officer, then the Deputy can make the physical detaimnent of the passenger based on the directive from
ICE. The difference in this scenario from the first two is that there was a criminal offense under state law
committed by the passenger. The passenger was not detained because of suspicion he was an illegal alien. The
passenger was detained for a state law violation and in the course of the ongoing investigation ICE was contacted.
Notes for Discussion- Scenario 3:
1) Per our many conversations LT, patrol needs very clear & direct instructions on how to handle
these situations.
3

CaseySub 00004 7

Case 2:07-cv-02513-GMS Document 1333-1 Filed 09/11/15 Page 6 of 45


Is the Office going to require that criminal offenders in these instances be booked as a matter of
policy, having removed the Deputy's discretion? If yes, then this in my opinion removes any idea
of ever having patrol tum over a suspected illegal alien to ICE. They would all be booked.
3) There is the Florence ERO issue ... Unless the Deputy is working in District One or Six, any
turnover of an alien to ICE would conceivably take at a minimum 1 hour to as much as 3 hours or
more given that the Deputy would have to drive to Florence or wait for ICE Officers to come to
him from Florence. If the Deputy is going to be authorized to drive there, this is an out of county
travel assignment and the training would need to address the Deputy obtaining supervisory
permission for the out of county travel- just my opinion thinking about liability.
2)

Scenario 4
A Patrol Deputy conducts a traffic stop on a vehicle for speeding. The Deputy finds the vehicle is occupied by
I 0 Hispanic subjects - a driver and nine passengers. The passengers all appear to have either no ID or only ID
issued by another country other than the U.S. The passengers all appear to have a disheveled look, are dirty in
appearance, look as if one or more of them were very recently in a desert enviromnent, and all appear
nervous. There is a lack ofluggage in the vehicle. The nine passengers are taking up space in the vehicle meant
to comfortably seat six or less. The driver provides a story about their travel that cannot be corroborated in totality
by the passengers or there are conflicting stories of their travel between the driver and passengers. The driver
eventually admits he is being paid for driving these passengers to a specific destination (could be he is receiving
money for gas). In this scenario, the Deputy should contact the on-call HSU Sgt. through Radio as these
observations are good observations that human smuggling is taking place- a state felony crime.
Notes for Discussion- Scenario 4:
I) Not all of these observations need to be present to reasonably believe human smuggling is taking
place. Any two or more of these observations would be sufficient to justify a call to the on-call
HSU Sgt.
2) This would also apply to drop houses and stand-up loads, those caught traveling through the open
desert on foot with a coyote/guide.

The below email was likely written in follow-up to a telephone conversation I had with Chief Brian Sands after
the decision/Order came out.
Brian was our (i.e., litigation counsels') point of primary contact in this case at that time. Because of the
holiday timing of the Order and whatever might take place in the field with HSU personnel until the end of the
year, Brian agreed to immediately address the Order with HSU and make necessary changes so there would be
no violations over the holidays. It is likely that Brian requested that I copy Lt. Joe Sousa on this follow-up
email. Joe was the Lt. in charge ofHSU at the time. Brian also was to briefthe Sheriff on the Order until a
joint meeting with counsel and the Sheriff could occur after the holidays.
At the time the email was sent, Chief Sheridan was still rather new to me and he was copied solely as a protocol
courtesy because I believe he was either the Interim Chief Deputy or the newly appointed replacement Chief
Deputy. Chief Macintyre was also copied solely as a courtesy so he was aware of the Order. It was neither my
expectation nor understanding that Chiefs Sheridan or Macintyre would take action on this Order because HSU
and saturation patrols were historically in the province of Brian's command authority, he was the one that
exclusively handled matters arising in this litigation that affected HSU/saturation patrols, and Brian was
handling this Order.
During the trial in July/August 2012, we learned that some members of the HSU were unfamiliar with the
12/23/11 Order, nothing had changed as a result of the Order, and that violations of the Order had occurred
between the date of its issuance and the trial. Privately, the defense team learned that Brian had not directed
any changes in HSU. This latter point is not of court record or publicly known.
The fact that the Order had been violated is not a surprise to the Court given the trial. See 5/24/14 Findings of
Fact and Conclusion of Law at page 114 (where the Court found, as a matter oflaw, that "MCSO has violated
the explicit terms of this Court's preliminary injunction set forth in its December 23, 2011 order because MCSO
continues to follow the LEAR policy and the LEAR policy violates the injunction.")
WARNING ON PRIVILEGE
Please remember the email below is attorney-client privileged. Its circulation to the Monitor would certainly
waive the privilege. Its circulation to non-MCSO control group personnel could potentially waive the
privilege. Only the Sheriff and/or the Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan have the authority, in my judgment, to

determine whether any privilege is to be waived. As such, you and Capt. Bailey will need to keep in mind this
legal privilege issue in mind as you prepare your investigatory efforts and strategy.
Please contact me if you have any questions.

Subject: Melendres Order On Summary Judgement
Importance: High

Folks,

In follow-up to my recent telephone call, attached is the Court's Order on the dueling summary judgement
motions and class certification motion.
Here is a quick summary:

1. There is NO finding as a matter of law that the MCSO is racial profiling. The racial profiling claim must
be resolved at trial (Plaintiffs' motion is denied; Defendants' motion is denied);
2. The PlaintiffRodrignez Fom1h Amendment Claim is dismissed but there racial profiling claim appears to
exist;
3.

The Plaintiffs Melendres and Meraz and Nieto's Fom1h Amendt claims as to traffic stops will go to trial;

4. Melendres' Fom1h Amendment claim is granted on oral motion of the Plaintiffs as to his
DETENTION. The Court ruled that Deputy Louis DiPietro did not have reasonable suspicion that Melendres
may have violated the human smuggling statute Gn other words, he did not have reasonable suspicion that all
the elements of the crime may have been satisified).

5. The Court is enjoining the MCSO "from detaining any person based solely on knowledge, without
more, that the person is in the country without unlawful authority. To be clear, the Court is not enjoing
MCSO from enforcing valid state laws, or detaining invidudals when officer have reasonable suspicion
that individuals are violating a state criminal law. Instead, it is enjoing MCSO from violating federal,
rights protected by the United States Constitution in the process of enforcing valid state law based on an
incorrect understanding ofthe law.: p. 37-38.
6.

Class certification is granted.

Where do go from here:


1. Declare victory on plaintiffs' failure to prove (so far) racial profiling. They themselves said they would win
as a matter of law and did not want a trial;
2. Plaintiffs were granted only a very narrow victory on detention issues
3. Nothing stops the MCSO from conducting saturation patrols or crime suppression operatios ;
4. The MCSO will appeal the narrow area of victory given to PlaintiffMelendres.
