CA10: No Bivens remedy for false arrest and malicious prosecution

No Bivens remedy for false arrest and malicious prosecution. Even if wrong, there was qualified immunity here. Boudette v. Buffington, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 24512 (10th Cir. Aug. 17, 2021).

The citizen informant called police to say that there was a domestic disturbance in Apartment 103. Before the police arrived, the CI called back to say she wasn’t sure about that. They arrived on the scene and didn’t find anything at 103 but heard screams elsewhere. “In sum, viewing the facts in the light most favorable to Plaintiffs, a reasonable juror could find that Defendants’ warrantless entry into Plaintiffs’ home was unconstitutional.” Williams v. Maurer, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 24522 (6th Cir. Aug. 17, 2021).*

This 911 call from a domestic dispute around a convenience store brought police who merely parked and approached to inquire. There was no stop. State v. Ferrell, 2021-Ohio-2826, 2021 Ohio App. LEXIS 2774 (5th Dist. Aug. 17, 2021).*
