CASE ENTRY

Bunch v. United States

After her son dies in a fire, Indiana police accuse woman of setting the blaze. When an ATF investigator finds no evidence of arson, state police persuade him to change his testimony. The woman is wrongfully convicted and spends 17 years in prison. Can she sue the ATF agent? Maybe, says the Seventh Circuit; we remand for fact finding about the agent’s official duties.
