The alt-weekly has filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming that the 8-year-old Arizona law used to investigate it for publishing Sheriff Joe Arpaio's home address on its website infringes on the First Amendment, the East Valley Tribune reports. The paper's attorneys want Judge Robert Broomfield to block prosecutors anywhere in the state from using the law. The County Attorney's office is crafting a response to the suit, according to the Tribune.
