Two Village Voice Media executives who were arrested last October for publishing details of a grand jury subpoena issued because of reporting in the Phoenix New Times have sued the Maricopa County sheriff, the county attorney and a special prosecutor who led the grand jury. The articles focused on real estate deals involving the long-time sheriff, Joe Arpaio. Charges against the newspaper executives were dropped and the special prosecutor fired. (5/1/08)
