Coffey v. Carroll

In the 1933 Claude Rains film, the invisible man is undone when police see his footprints in the snow. In 2016, Taylor, Mich. police followed the snowy footprints of a burglary suspect back to his home. And since there’s a factual dispute about whether they then illegally entered the home and roughed him up, the man’s civil rights case is going to trial, holds the Sixth Circuit.
