|Docket No.||Op. Below||Argument||Opinion||Vote||Author||Term|
|13-1318||5th Cir.||Not Argued||Nov 10, 2014||TBD||Per Curiam||OT 2014|
Holding: The court of appeals erred in entering summary judgment against the petitioners, police officers who filed a lawsuit against the city where they worked, for failure to invoke 42 U.S.C. § 1983 in their complaint. Federal pleading rules do not countenance the dismissal of a complaint for imperfect statement of the legal theory supporting the claim. And in particular, no heightened pleading rule requires plaintiffs seeking damages for violations of constitutional rights to invoke § 1983 expressly in order to state a claim.
