Close Date: 12/13/2010
Date Of Involvement: 11/10/2010
Docket: 10-233

Description:

This case presented the following questions:

1. Whether the Third Circuit erred in referencing a split in the circuit courts of appeals on the issue of whether Heck v. Humphrey, 512 U.S. 477 (1994), is an automatic bar to recovery in a subsequent § 1983 action where there was a prior conviction for assault “arising from the same incident?”

2. Whether the Third Circuit erred by creating a different standard of review than required by Heck v. Humphrey?
