CASE ENTRY

Jordan v. Blount County

Blount County, Tenn. detective and prosecutor withhold exculpatory evidence in 2002 murder trial, so man’s conviction is vacated in 2011. He’s acquitted on retrial in 2015. Was the man’s deadline to sue for prosecutorial misconduct a year after the vacatur or a year after the acquittal? The latter, says the Sixth Circuit, so his suit should not have been dismissed.
