The national budget motel chain said in September that its Phoenix employees will no longer work with immigration authorities after the Phoenix New Times reported that workers were providing guests' names to agents who later arrested 20 people on immigration charges.

In a tweet at the time, Motel 6 said: "This was implemented at the local level without the knowledge of senior management."

Two weeks before the case was filed in Arizona, the Washington state attorney general sued the chain, saying it had violated a state consumer protection law by providing the private information of thousands of guests to immigration agents without a warrant.

The chain has said it had told its more than 1,400 locations that they were prohibited from voluntarily providing guest lists to immigration authorities.

The Arizona lawsuit was filed in federal court on behalf of eight unnamed Latinos who stayed at two Motel 6 locations in the city during June and July 2017. All but one of the eight was arrested.
