CASE ENTRY

Goudy v. Cummings

Man convicted for a 1993 Anderson, Ind. murder is released in 2010 when it’s revealed that investigators withheld evidence. Can he now get damages from an investigator who allegedly hid a video of witnesses identifying another suspect as the shooter? District court: No. Seventh Circuit: Maybe. There’s enough evidence to get past summary judgment.
