PHOENIX (AP) - A federal judge presiding over a racial profiling case against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office has scheduled an April 3 status conference in the case.

U.S. District Judge Murray Snow chided Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his top aide on Monday for mischaracterizing his findings.

Ten months ago, Snow concluded Arpaio's office systematically racially profiled Latinos in its immigration and regular traffic patrols and unreasonably prolonged the detentions of people during traffic stops.

Arpaio has vigorously denied the racial profiling allegations and appealed the ruling.

Snow says there are complaints that MCSO is providing inaccurate information on the case.

Lawyers on both sides have been ordered to summarize Snow's rulings and put those statements in a letter that Arpaio and his chief deputy will sign and give to all MCSO employees.
