John “Jack” Wilenchik, the lawyer for former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, on Wednesday asked a federal appellate panel for what he called an act of “judicial housekeeping.”

With President Donald Trump pardoning Arpaio in 2017, the federal judge in Phoenix overseeing the criminal contempt of court case against him granted his motion to dismiss his case. But that judge—U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton of the District of Arizona—declined to vacate the court record in the case, finding the president’s pardon did “not erase a judgment of conviction, or its underlying legal and factual findings.”
