    John D. Ashcroft, former Attorney General, et al. v. Javaid Iqbal, et al.

Subject:

    Constitutional Law, Government Law, Civil Rights

Question:

    1. Whether a conclusory allegation that a cabinet- level officer or other high-ranking
    official knew of, condoned, or agreed to subject a plaintiff to allegedly
    unconstitutional acts purportedly committed by subordinate officials is sufficient to
    state individual-capacity claims against those officials under Bivens.

    2. Whether a cabinet-level officer or other high-ranking official may be held
    personally liable for the allegedly unconstitutional acts of subordinate officials on the
    ground that, as high-level supervisors, they had constructive notice of the
    discrimination allegedly carried out by such subordinate officials.
