Haywood v. Drown
No. 07-10374

Title:

    Keith Haywood v. Curtis Drown

Subject:

    Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Prisoner Civil Rights, Damages

Question:

    Whether a state’s withdrawal of jurisdiction over certain damages claims against
    state corrections employees — from state courts of general jurisdiction — may be
    constitutionally applied to exclude federal claims under Section 1983, especially
    when, as here, the state legislature withdrew jurisdiction because it concluded that
    permitting such lawsuits is bad policy?
