Documents

Ganek v. Leibowitz

2nd Circuit Court of Appeals; Case No. 16-1463-cv

Prior Decision

Decision below 167 F.Supp.3d 623 (S.D.N.Y. Mar. 10, 2016).

Argument

Misconduct by prosecutors and law enforcement officers is far too common. Prosecutors and law enforcement officers face few consequences for their misconduct. Civil rights lawsuits – and the threat of personal liability – play a critical role in deterring misconduct by prosecutors and law enforcement officers.
