CASE ENTRY

Mills v. City of Covina

Covina, Calif. police search man in 2013, resulting in conviction for possessing contraband. In 2016, the conviction is reversed; the search was illegal. Shortly after, the man sues officers, the city for false arrest (among other things). Which was too late, says the Ninth Circuit. That he was still appealing his conviction when his deadline to file suit expired doesn’t change anything.
