Here are last week’s published decisions involving local governments:
- Butler v. Nat. Comm. Renaissance of Cal., No. 11-55806 (Sept. 12, 2014): The court affirmed that 1983 action challenging warrantless search of apartment was untimely.
- West v. Davis, No. 13-14805 (Sept. 8, 2014): The court found that district court improperly granted summary judgment for security guard in case in which West challenged the actions of a security guard at courthouse security checkpoint; district court should have applied standard for “seizures” under the Fourth Amendment.
- Singletary v. District of Columbia, No. 12-7077 (Sept. 12, 2014): The court held that the District of Columbia cannot be held responsible for Board of Parole decision under Monell v. Department of Social Services, 436 U.S. 658 (1978).
