CASE ENTRY

Hassan v. Shaw

Woman says she was raped by a Shreveport, La. police officer after he asked her to come in to the station. So can she sue the police chief? Fifth Circuit: Not when she didn’t give details on how the chief was involved. The only evidence against him was speculation based on a third officer’s refusal to testify.
