Egbert v. Boule

This court case is active

A federal Border Patrol agent drove onto the property of a person who runs an inn near the Canadian border in Whatcom County, without a warrant or consent to enter. The agent then tried to question a guest of the inn and the innkeeper tried to stop the agent from harassing the guest.  The agent shoved the innkeeper to the ground and injured him, plus when the innkeeper complained about the agent’s conduct, the agent tried to get various agencies to investigate the innkeeper.  The innkeeper sued the agent but the agent alleges the “Bivens” suit should not be allowed.  ACLU-WA joined an amicus brief in the US Supreme Court asking the Court to allow the suit to proceed.
