CASE ENTRY

Campbell v. Ackerman

SWAT team raids Casco, Maine home of woman whose husband was suspected to be a felon in possession of firearms. Yikes! Turns out he’s not a felon. First Circuit: She sought to challenge the validity of the search warrant too late in the litigation, and there’s no cause to revisit her unsuccessful excessive force claim. Editorial staff: But there’s always cause for a Judge Selya vocab quiz: anent, limning, and pellucid.
