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

In Miller v. St. Joesph County (ND Ind., Lozano), a 6-page opinion, Judge Posner writes:

The plaintiff, Michael Miller, a ser-geant in the Detective Bureau of the St. Joseph County (Indi-ana) Police Department, where he had worked for more than thirty years, filed this suit against the County (which happens to be the county in which South Bend is located), the County Sheriff (Michael Grzegorek), who is in charge of the department and also the county jail, and other entities and individuals unnecessary to mention let alone discuss. Mil-ler’s suit charges that the defendants had, in violation of several federal statutes, discriminated against him because he’s black. The district court granted summary judgment in favor of the defendants, precipitating this appeal. * * *

The judgment of the district court dismissing the plain-tiff’s suit is AFFIRMED
