Officials mull action in 2 suits against Arpaio

PHOENIX (AP) -- Maricopa County officials held a closed-door meeting Thursday to consider action in two lawsuits that accuse Sheriff Joe Arpaio of abusing his powers.
 
The officials didn't take any action and plan to pick up the issue again Friday.
 
The county won't reveal the action being considered in a lawsuit filed over unsuccessful criminal cases against ex-County Supervisor Don Stapley and another lawsuit over the 2007 arrest of two newspaper executives.
 
Stapley and other officials alleged they were targeted for investigation because they were at odds with Arpaio and others in disputes.

Arpaio contended his office was trying to root out corruption.
 
The newspaper executives' lawsuit accuses Arpaio's office of constitutional rights violations in the arrests of the two executives after the Phoenix New Times disclosed a secret grand jury subpoena.
