PHOENIX — The U.S. Justice Department wants a racial profiling ruling against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office to stand as the judgment on some of the federal government's allegations in a broader civil rights case against the sheriff's office.

Federal officials have asked U.S. District Judge Roslyn Silver to let another judge's 2013 racial profiling ruling against Arpaio's office stand as the judgment on the Justice Department's discriminatory policing allegations against the agency.

If the request is granted, the agency would still face other pending claims by the Justice Department, such as allegations that the agency retaliates against Arpaio's critics and punishes Latino jail inmates with limited English skills for speaking Spanish.

Arpaio's attorneys say Silver lacks jurisdiction on the Justice Department's discriminatory policing allegations.
