CASE ENTRY

Estate of Walker v. Wallace

Allegation: St. Louis SWAT team raids home. An hour later, a city building inspector demands that a resident, who is still cuffed, sign a consent-to-search form—or his family will be put out on the street and the home condemned. District court: The family can’t sue the police. But they can sue the inspector and the city. Eighth Circuit: The family can’t sue the inspector.
