Karmic justice? Maybe not so much. There is a deadline and a limit to what Arpaio's victims can get.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio may have been pardoned but his legacy of unlawfully detaining people perceived to be undocumented Latino immigrants is unforgivable in the court of public opinion and, apparently, in U.S. federal court.
As a result of the federal court case, originally known as Ortega Melendres v. Arpaio, now known as Ortega Melendres v. Penzone, people who were stopped by Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MSCO) between December 23, 2011 and May 24, 2013, based on their immigration status, can finally have their justice — if they make it before the deadline.
