CASE ENTRY

Crabbs v. Scott

After man is acquitted of manslaughter, Franklin County, Ohio sheriff delays his release in order to administer DNA cheek swab. A Fourth Amendment violation? Sixth Circuit (2015): State law didn’t require the swab; the sheriff is not protected by sovereign immunity. Sixth Circuit (2018): Though the man has died, the case isn’t over; his mother can proceed.
