PHOENIX -- A deadline has been extended for lawyers in the racial profiling against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office to hand in a recommendation on who should be appointed to monitor the agency's operations to ensure it isn't making unconstitutional arrests.

Attorneys on both sides of the case have until Dec. 9 to agree on a monitor who will ultimately be appointed by U.S. District Judge Murray Snow.

If the lawyers can't agree on a prospect for the job, each side must recommend three candidates for the job.

Snow concluded in a May ruling that the sheriff's office has systematically singled out Latinos in its immigration patrols and that deputies unreasonably prolonged the detentions of people who were pulled over.

The agency is appealing the ruling.
