CA9: Sexual groping during a prison search states 4A excessive force claim

It was clearly established that groping a (transgender) woman during prison searches was unreasonable as excessive force. Goff v. Ramirez, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 4876 (9th Cir. Feb. 13, 2020). (The plaintiff being transgender had nothing to do with the outcome.)

A Fourth Amendment claim can’t be brought in a 2255. (It was not raised as an ineffective assistance of counsel claim even though other IAC claims were sought to be brought) Bankston v. United States, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 4854 (6th Cir. Feb. 14, 2020).*
