A lawsuit over the LAPD's policy Special Order 40 goes before a judge Tuesday.

The directive prohibits officers from questioning suspects about their immigration status.

A Los Angeles resident filed a lawsuit, seeking to declare Special Order 40 unlawful.

The suit states that the policy hampered the department's ability to exchange information with federal immigration officials.

Some say repealing the order would make illegal immigrants fearful of police.
