• Capitol Media Services

Citing evidence of "inedible'' food, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected efforts by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to escape an order that he serve meals that meet federal dietary guidelines.

In an unsigned ruling Wednesday, the judges said there was evidence of ongoing violations of the constitutional rights of inmates who are being housed awaiting trial.
