CASE ENTRY

Nguyen v. Pennsylvania

Man nailed for drug crimes on New Year’s Eve gets charges dismissed; a Pennsylvania court says the search violated the Fourth Amendment. After the court’s decision, and three years after his arrest, he sues the arresting officer (for violating the Fourth Amendment). Third Circuit: Too late! The two-year statute of limitations runs from the time of the search, not the time of the decision invalidating it.
