Bressi v. Ford, No. 06-74297

By FindLaw Staff on August 04, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action claiming that defendant-officers stopped plaintiff at an illegal roadblock, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed in part where clearly established law did not render the roadblock unconstitutional. However, the ruling is reversed in part where the roadblock functioned not merely as a tribal exercise, but also as an instrument for the enforcement of state law.
