Over half of the dirt roads in Sandy Valley, some 50 miles (80.5 kilometers) southwest of Las Vegas, were hard hit and would require $427,000 worth of service alone, Welling said. The state's Division of Emergency Services is still working to provide a complete tally of the storm's damage.

Judge awards $4.4 million to lawyers in Arizona racial profiling case

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 09/12/2014 - 11:33
By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - A federal judge on Thursday awarded more than $4.4 million to attorneys who won a long-running racial profiling case against the operations of Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, although that pared the sum plaintiffs' lawyers had sought by about a third. District Judge Murray Snow ruled that four groups of plaintiffs' lawyers were entitled to the amount to cover their fees and expenses for the case, in which another judge found that sheriff's deputies were unfairly singling out Latino drivers for traffic stops on the basis of ethnicity. In May 2013, the trial judge found that racial profiling had occurred during traffic stops and that drivers were being detained for too long.
