Federal Court Dismissal of False Arrest Claims: Civil Commitment

A former Town employee brought claims against the defendants, several police employees and their Town, including counts asserting false arrest, kidnapping, due process violations and assault and battery. A Motion to Dismiss was filed on behalf of the defendants arguing that they were immune from liability in applying for an Application for Civil Commitment under state law. The Court dismissed the plaintiff's complaint in its entirety. (BayState Legal Defense Service Newsletter, Volume I-2)
