The 7th Circuit Is A Mess

This decision, White v. City of Chicago, came down 4 days ago.  I think the truth is that Judge Feinerman just likes to side with police and throw Plaintiffs out of court, but I’ll concede that his Court of Appeals gives him plenty of ammunition.

Just read the whole thing.  It’s better than his last opinion, but it’s still straining and straining to throw the Plaintiff out and protect the cops.

Judge Feinerman needs to recognize two things:  first, deliberate lying, cheating or evidence fabricating by the government in a criminal case violates due process no matter when in the process it occurs, not just at a trial; and second…

never mind.

I wonder if anyone brought the Manuel cert grant to Judge Feinerman’s attention before he issued that opinion?
