O’Keefe v. Chisholm

Petition for certiorari denied on May 18, 2015
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
14-872 7th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2014

Issue: (1) Whether considerations of “equity, comity, and federalism” insufficient to support abstention can override the holding in Mitchum v. Foster that 42 U.S.C. § 1983 is an “expressly authorized” statutory exception to the Anti-Injunction Act; and (2) whether, as this Court left unresolved in Hartman v. Moore, officials may be held liable for subjecting citizens to investigation in retaliation for First Amendment-protected speech and association, particularly where non-retaliatory grounds are insufficient to support the investigation.
