Scheier v. City of Snohomish, et al.

Order Denying Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment

less-

This was a civil rights case where a photographer who was detained for photographing power lines near a power-station brought claims based on her detention and arrest. Defendants moved for summary judgment based on qualified immunity and on the issue of municipal liability. The court denied the motions, ruling that (1) the Defendant-officers effected an arrest and lacked adequate justification for escalating the Terry stop and (2) the City was not entitled to summary judgment on the issue of municipal liability because it had ratified the conduct of the officers.

I handled the case as a cooperating attorney for the ACLU of Washington.
