High court to decide role of Nashville deputies

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The state Supreme Court will decide whether Nashville’s sheriff’s office violated the Metro Charter when it entered into an agreement with federal immigration authorities.

Attorney Elliott Ozment sued the department in January 2011 on behalf of 3 Nashville residents affected by the 287(g) program. That program allows deputies to investigate the immigration status of inmates.
