Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:


Issue: Whether a third-party finding of probable cause—including a post-arrest grand jury indictment—precludes a false arrest suit under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit has held pursuant to its “independent intermediary doctrine,” in conflict with precedent of this court and other courts of appeals.
