Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today

In CHRISTIAN SERINO v. ALEC HENSLEY AND CITY OF OAKLAND CITY, INDIANA (SD Ind., Young, CJ), a 14-page opinion, Judge Flaum writes:

In September 2008, Oakland City Chief of Police Alec Hensley arrested Christian Serino for trespass and resisting law enforcement. The charges were eventually dropped. In March 2012, Serino filed suit against Hensley and Oakland City in federal district court. He alleged that Hensley violated his constitutional rights and committed multiple state‐law torts. The district court dis missed each of Serino’s federal and state claims at the Rule 12(b)(6) stage. We now affirm.
