CA3: PC for ptf’s arrest for punching a police horse

“Viewing the facts in the light most favorable to Coco as the non-moving party, we conclude there is a genuine dispute as to whether there was probable cause to arrest Coco for harassing a police horse under Del. Code tit. 11, § 1250(a)(1). We cannot conclude that the facts of record demonstrate a ‘fair probability’ that Coco committed a crime when persons present during the incident disagree about the events underlying Coco’s arrest. Dempsey, 834 F.3d at 468. Thus, Coco’s unlawful detention claim survives summary judgment.” Coco v. Dear, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 8593 (3d Cir. Apr. 10, 2024).*

CoA on the merits of this post-conviction Fourth Amendment claim denied under Stone. It was litigated in state court. Batson v. Sec’y, Fla. Dep’t of Corr., 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 8572 (11th Cir. Apr. 9, 2024).*
