S.D.Ind.: SoL for false arrest starts on release from custody

The statute of limitations for a false arrest case starts with release. Manuel v. City of Joliet, Ill. (Manuel II), 903 F.3d 667, 669 (7th Cir. 2018), on remand from Manuel v. City of Joliet, Ill., 137 S. Ct. 911 (2017). Atwood v. Thompson, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 5731 (S.D.Ind. Jan. 10, 2022).*

Whether exigency existed for police action in a § 1983 case is a fact question for a jury, but the facts here are not in dispute that there was no exigency. Marbury v. Karish, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 5771 (E.D.Mich. Jan. 11, 2022).*

For a case alleging a traffic stop interfered with the “right to travel” of a “sovereign man” [not a “sovereign citizen”] and alleged Fourth Amendment violations, see Bey v. Woolridge, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 5818 (E.D.Pa. Jan. 12, 2022).*

“Brennan tried to get Betts to stand behind the truck by invitation, explanation, command, and even by grasping his arm. And Brennan warned Betts more than once that he would be tased if he did not comply with his orders. Only when all those lesser options appeared to have failed did Brennan use his taser.” “In sum, we conclude that Officer Brennan did not violate the Fourth Amendment by tasing Betts one time in order to arrest him.” Betts v. Brennan, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 797 (5th Cir. Jan. 11, 2022).* [Remember: “Taser” is a proper noun (https://taser.com/) like Kleenex is (and Aspirin once was).]
