Waggy v. Spokane County, No. 09-35133

By FindLaw Staff on February 05, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action claiming that county prosecuting attorneys and a county violated plaintiff's constitutional right to be free from arrest without probable cause, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed where: 1) the prosecutor's motion for a bench warrant essentially constituted the initiation of new judicial proceedings against plaintiff for violating the terms of his community placement, and was not an investigative act; and 2) plaintiff pointed to no county policy or custom that caused his alleged injury.
