Sara Mills Successfully Defends Seventh Circuit Appeal in Fourth Amendment Case Alleging Brady Violations

Attorney Sara Mills recently received a favorable decision in the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. In Jones v. York, the Court of Appeals upheld the district court's grant of summary judgment to Sara and her clients in a case involving claims of Fourth Amendment violations. After her criminal conviction was vacated, the plaintiff asserted that she was wrongfully found guilty of arson as a result of the lead investigator's alleged withholding of exculpatory evidence and false testimony at her criminal trial. Both the district court and the Court of Appeals held that the plaintiff had not identified any withheld Brady evidence, nor had she identified any false or fabricated testimony. Further, both courts held that the plaintiff had not established the requisite element of causation.
