CASE ENTRY

Shaw v. Villanueva

Karnes County, Tex. man goes to rival’s granddaughter’s elementary school during pickup, pantomimes shooting the rival. He’s arrested for harassment. But wait! Maybe it never happened. He says he wasn’t at the school that day: The sheriff’s department trumped it up for political revenge. So can he sue the head honchos at the sheriff’s office? Fifth Circuit: Not when he didn’t give details on how management was involved.
