Two alleged white supremacists charged in a 2004 bombing that injured a black city official in Scottsdale have been moved from a county jail after their lawyers said their rights were violated.

U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell had been scheduled to decide Thursday whether to move twin brothers Dennis and Daniel Mahon from the Maricopa County jail in downtown Phoenix to a federal facility.

But the hearing was canceled after prosecutors told the court that the brothers would be removed from the jail.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says the brothers were moved Tuesday to another facility, either a federal or private prison.

The brothers were arrested in Davis Junction, Ill., in June. They're charged in a bombing that injured Don Logan, Scottsdale's diversity director at the time.
