Police, The Fourth Amendment, Qualified Immunity

ARMIJO v. PERALES, 688 F.3d 685 (Tenth Circuit, August 1, 2012)

with one comment


Appellants Armando Perales, Arnold Chavez, Adrian Flores and Mirabel Jimenez failed to collect probable cause sufficient to support plaintiff’s (a former police chief) arrest warrant. Judge Tymkovich dissented, arguing, at least somewhat persuasively, that there indeed was probable cause because of suspicious discrepancies on some sales documents.

Comment: I wonder what kind of behind-the-scenes policitcal intrigue in Columbus, New Mexico led to this mess.

  1. You mean the thing about filing a battery report against the mayor? Small town life is awesome, so idyllic.
