Plaintiff's civil rights suit following his exoneration by DNA evidence

Hill v. Coppleson, 09-1878, concerned a plaintiff's suit against the City of Chicago, police officers, and an assistant state's attorney, alleging various constitutional violations after he was exonerated by DNA evidence over a decade after being convicted of sexual assault and homicide.

In dismissing an appeal from a district court's denial of the assistant state's attorney's motion for summary judgment for lack of jurisdiction, the court held that the immunity issue cannot be resolved without resolving disputed questions of fact regarding the assistant state's attorney's role in the case.
