The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Manuel v. City of Joliet, Illinois, on whether the defendant, who was arrested for drug possession and held for two months based on falsified evidence, can sue the city for what is referred to as malicious prosecution for violating his Fourth Amendment rights. The court was considering if the Fourth Amendment’s ban against unwarranted searches and seizures extends beyond arrest through arraignment and can serve as a basis for a malicious prosecution claim.

On March 21, 2017, the court ruled 6-2 that the Fourth Amendment’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures applies not just to arrests but also when suspects are detained. The ruling sent the case back to a lower court to reconsider. close
