Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:

14-708

Issue: (1) Whether the Fifth Circuit erred in refusing to find a triable issue as to whether there is a “policy” or “custom” when there was significant evidence of Brady v. Maryland violations by the Orleans Parish District Attorney in this and many other cases; and (2) whether proving municipal policy or custom requires proving similar unconstitutional acts that occurred before the events giving rise to the lawsuit or whether proof of a policy or custom can be based, in part, on similar unconstitutional acts that occurred following the events involving these plaintiffs.
