Case: BIGHAM v. WHARTON TOWNSHIP (W.D.Pa. 10-27-2011)

What allegedly happened:

Plaintiffs further allege that on more than one occasion, Defendant Jordan, a Pennsylvania State Police Trooper, intentionally cited and illegally arrested Plaintiff Robert Bigham for various infractions directly related to [a] Property [involved in a boundary line and trespassing dispute with certain third parties].

Decision: Police may end up being liable here.

Comment: Basically a he-said / she-said case.
