Sarin v. MaGee

Pennsylvania motorist arrested for DUI spends nine months in jail (allegedly causing him to be expelled from university) before a state judge reviews dashcam footage and is unable to detect the unsignaled lane changes that police say they pulled him over for. Without probable cause for the stop, the evidence is suppressed and charges withdrawn. The man sues the police in federal court. District Court: The state court ruling does not preclude the officers from arguing in federal court that the stop was reasonable.
