Cert. granted: Hernández v. Mesa, No. 17-1678 (ScotusBlog)
Issue: Whether, when the plaintiffs plausibly allege that a rogue federal law-enforcement officer violated clearly established Fourth and Fifth amendment rights for which there is no alternative legal remedy, the federal courts can and should recognize a damages claim under Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics.
The Court previously remanded: Hernández v. Mesa, 137 S. Ct. 2003, 198 L. Ed. 2d 625 (June 26, 2017) (per curiam) (remanded in light of Ziglar v. Abbasi to determine whether Bivens applies) (ScotusBlog)
