Mitchell v. Morton County Sheriff

Mitchell v. Morton County Sheriff

The Eighth Circuit will decide whether a peaceful, unarmed protester can sue to hold police officers who severely injured him accountable. IJ filed an amicus brief to explain why the dismissal of all charges against the protester (through a pretrial diversion agreement) should not immunize the officers and their employers from liability.
