CA7: Ptfs allege enough to survive judgment on the pleadings of a race-based search

Plaintiffs alleged enough to get past motion for judgment on the pleadings that they were searched based on their race. “The complaint filed by Vanessa Enoch and Avery Corbin alleges that they were taking photographs and making video recordings at an impromptu press conference in a courthouse hallway when Defendants violated their clearly established constitutional rights by stopping, searching, and arresting them based on their race. Accepting as true the factual allegations in their complaint, Enoch and Corbin have plausibly alleged violations of their clearly established First and Fourth Amendment rights. We therefore AFFIRM the decision of the district court to deny qualified immunity to the Deputies at this stage of the case.” Enoch v. Hogan, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 7310 (6th Cir. Mar. 23, 2018).
