US citizen in immigrant detention for over three years has no right to sue, court rules

‘A US court has ruled that a US citizen who spent more than three years in federal immigration custody can not sue, because his false imprisonment claim was “untimely.” The Jamaican-American was also denied the $82,500 settlement he previously won.

In a 2-1 vote on Monday, the Second US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Davino Watson, a US citizen held in a New York detention center for 1,273 days, could not sue for damages.

“There is no doubt that the government botched the investigation into Watson’s assertion of citizenship, and that as a result a US citizen was held for years in immigration detention and was nearly deported,” Circuit Judge Dennis Jacobs wrote in the majority opinion. “Nonetheless, we must conclude that Watson is not entitled to damages from the government.”

By reversing the decision from the lower court, the appeals court also blocked Watson from receiving a $82,500 settlement.’

Just think of the implications of this court decision  !

Here's just one:

We can no longer sue for reparation for false imprisonment ?


Can anyone else out there think of additional implications ?
Please reply.

2 days have passed and no other comments ?

How about this further implication of this court ruling:

Even if  the courts rule that the government owes you money,
don't be foolish enough to expect payment.


Just imagine the chaos that would erupt if EVERYONE refused to pay their rent/mortgage/taxes on April 15th, 2018
and EVERYONE refused to show up for work that day ?

Worked for Gandhi, didn't it ?

The resistance method most feared by govts.
Any response what so ever makes the govt look like the 'bad guys'.

And a question in response to your response, sir, is :

What will it take for the peoples of the USA and UK to adopt this proven effective method of resistance ?

Responses from you EG,
and other Gulag posters and readers are more than welcomed.

I'm not talking about a revolution, but a demonstration of power by the people.

Thank you, 2Revolutions, for your further investigation into this grave miscarriage of justice.

Mark Flessner, one of Mr Watson's attorneys told  the Reuters  news agency the following:
" We are all at risk if this can happen.
If there isn't a procedure that allows citizens to be immediately released without any kind of due process,
it just points to the broken system " (under which we live).

When I read further, I found some shocking statistics.
Apparently, there are many more cases where this has happened.

According to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearing-house,
detainers  were mistakenly placed on 834 citizens of the United States and 28,489 permanent residents  between the years  2008 to 2012 !
Most of the detainers remained in effect for a few days to several months before the errors were corrected.
So far Mr Watson has served the longest period of time being held in detention.

I was unable to find any statistics relating to other similar situations for the years 2013  up until the present date.

Mark Fleming from the National Immigrant Justice Center,
and co-counsel representing Mr Watson told Reuters the   following:
"About half of the lawsuits brought by citizens against the US government have been settled
and the rest are pending."

But again I question what is meant by the word "settled".
Does this mean that reparations were made for false imprisonment ?
Or does this mean that the people who were falsely detained were released ?

Gah, so much going on; it's hard to keep track. That's a very reasonable settlement as well. Not like he's asking for a billion.

From the document...

We affirm the judgment in all other respects. The
malicious prosecution claim fails because the government did not act with
malice, the negligent investigation claim fails for lack of a private analogue, and
the negligent delay claim fails because Watson suffered no cognizable damages.

It's the justUS system. No cognizable damages? Yea cause sitting in jail not being able to do anything but watch your back for three years, wasn't unreasonable seizure. Introducing a malice charge might have been the wrong approach though. You gotta know how to fight the BAR. Not simply go in thinking the court is going to have any sympathy.

BTW I'm simply stating what I would personally do and not giving any legal advice  ;)
