CASE ENTRY

Wheeler v. Hronopoulos

This wrongful arrest and malicious prosecution action is a “hornbook example of how to waive an argument on appeal,” says the Seventh Circuit. The plaintiff made a “bizarre argument” in the trial court, pressed an “irrational argument” on appeal, and then raised a new claim on appeal that was never raised below.
