Thompson v. Clark

Thompson v. Clark

Innocent-until-proven-guilty is a hallmark of our criminal justice system. But some Courts of Appeals require victims of unconstitutional conduct to prove their innocence before they can enforce their constitutional rights in a lawsuit. In this amicus brief, we urge the U.S. Supreme Court to reject that rule, which immunizes government officials from accountability for their unlawful acts.
