U.S. Supreme Court opinion: Feb. 25 Friday, February 26, 2021

The United States Supreme Court has issued an opinion in a case involving claims stemming from a violent encounter in which members of a federal task force mistook the plaintiff for a fugitive.

The court held that the District Court’s order dismissing plaintiff's Federal Tort Claims Act claims was a judgment on the merits that can trigger the Act’s judgment bar to block his claims under 28 U. S. C. §2676.
