Frerichs Law Offices Case Harrington

Pottawattamie vs Harrington (2013)

System Admin Case Law

Case description:

“Do prosecutors have total immunity from lawsuits for anything they do, including framing someone for murder? That is the question the justices of the Supreme Court face Wednesday.

On one side of the case being argued are Iowa prosecutors who contend “there is no freestanding right not to be framed.” They are backed by the Obama administration, 28 states and every major prosecutors organization in the country.

On the other side are two black men – Terry Harrington and Curtis McGhee – men who served 25 years in prison before evidence long hidden in police files resulted in them being freed.” -NPR
