Just passing along a noteworthy lawsuit.
In the wake of Connick v. Thompson, 563 U.S. ____, 131 S. Ct. 1350, 179 L. Ed. 2d 417 (2011), holding prosecutors responsible for their misconduct has become a grand, uphill battle. That’s what makes this story I saw on Sentencing Law & Policy particularly interesting. A woman accused of murder for a death that was the result natural causes has filed a suit in federal district court seeking $20 million on the grounds that the defendant turned plaintiff’s civil rights were violated. Definitely give it a read!
