Stoot v. Everett, No. 07-35425

By FindLaw Staff | Last updated on

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action alleging a wrongful interrogation, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed in part where the pertinent law on plaintiff's Fourth Amendment claim was not clearly established at the time of the violations. However, the ruling is reversed in part where defendants coerced incriminating statements from plaintiff in violation of the Fifth Amendment.
