PHOENIX -- Maricopa County is asking a judge to reconsider her decision not to dismiss the county from a lawsuit alleging that Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office carried out a pattern of discrimination against Latinos in its immigration patrols.

The sheriff's office was dismissed from the Justice Department's lawsuit, but Arpaio and the county failed in their bid to be dismissed.

The county says the case's judge erred in not addressing its argument that the U.S. Constitution requires dismissal if she can't grant the relief sought by the lawsuit.

Arpaio's office is accused profiling Latinos in its immigration patrols and retaliating against critics.

Arpaio denies the allegations, saying people are stopped if deputies have probable cause to believe they have committed crimes and that deputies later find many of them are illegal immigrants.
