PHOENIX, AZ (June 22, 2012) - A federal court today granted Maricopa County's motion for summary judgment in a lawsuit brought by SB 1070 protester Sunita Patel. In a seven-page order, U.S. District Judge Neil V. Wake ruled that Maricopa County Sheriff's Deputies had sufficient probable cause when they arrested Patel during protests outside the Fourth Avenue Jail in July, 2010, and that the officers are shielded by qualified immunity against monetary damage claims
...
Patel, an attorney with The Center for Constitutional Rights in New York, attended a protest against SB 1070 outside the Maricopa County Fourth Avenue Jail in downtown Phoenix on July 29, 2010, shortly after the legislation was enacted. Claiming she was acting as a legal observer, Patel took photographs and recorded the names of protesters who were arrested. After declaring the protest to be an unlawful assembly and commanding the protestors to disperse, County Sheriff's Deputies began arresting individuals who had formed a human chain blocking the driveway leading to the jail's sally port. Officers then told the crowd it had fifteen more minutes to disperse and went back into the jail.
About fifteen minutes later, deputies came back outside and ordered protesters to clear the driveway or face immediate arrest. Patel was subsequently arrested, along with several others, and charged with obstructing a public thoroughfare (A.R.S. § 13-2906) and failing to comply with a police officer (A.R.S. § 28-622). The charges were later dismissed by the County Attorney's Office.
In her claim against Maricopa County, Patel sought unspecified compensatory and punitive damages as well as injunctive relief from the Sheriff's Office.

Sunita Patel, an attorney with the Center for Constitutional Rights, claims she was "falsely arrested and imprisoned for approximately 15 hours, during which time she was repeatedly subjected to illegal and abusive custodial interrogations, and then maliciously prosecuted for almost a year thereafter, all in retaliation for exercising her constitutional rights to engage in the First Amendment protected activity of observing and documenting Maricopa County Sheriff's Office officers' behavior during a peaceful political protest."

Patel says she was standing on a sidewalk outside the Fourth Avenue Jail on July 29, 2010 "to observe and document the actions of the MSCO in policing First Amendment activity undertaken by hundreds of protestors peacefully protesting" the state's immigration law, Arizona Senate Bill 1070.
Patel, who had been asked to provide legal support by Puente, an immigrant-rights organization, and the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, was wearing a neon green hat on the day of the protest to identify herself as "legal support," according to her complaint.
