Brief filed: 07/03/2013


Poventud v. City of New York, et al.

2nd Circuit Court of Appeals; Case No. 12-1011


The Court need not address the question whether Heck’s favorable-termination rule applies in cases like this one. The Heck favorable-termination rule does not apply to individuals, like Poventud, who could not have obtained federal habeas relief while in custody.
