CASE ENTRY

Jackson v. Lawson

Man is held for 58 days in Grant County, Ky. jail on a warrant for failure to pay child support. But call up Maury—he is not the father! So can he sue the officer who was holding him? Sixth Circuit: He cannot. The officer wasn’t indifferent to the possibility of having the wrong guy.
