Coming up this week, we’re working on the Colorado centric Supreme Court Case, Reichle v. Howards. The arguments are set to be heard Wednesday and a ruling should be handed down before June. According to the NY Times, Reichle v. Howards will determine whether the Secret Service agents protecting Vice President Dick Cheney can be sued for arresting a man who attempted to assault the then Vice President while in Beaver Creek. The final ruling in the case is likely to set a landmark standard for how law enforcement is able to deal with arresting a citizen with or without being held liable for assault and becoming a target for lawsuits.
We’re representing Sean Gallagher, the attorney for the Secret Service agents who are being sued. For more information on the case, you can read the article from the Christian Science Monitor or the New York Times or contact Matt Yemma. We’ll be posting further coverage later this week.
