   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  16-1807
   U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska - Omaha    
   [PUBLISHED] [Beam, Author, with Colloton and Gruender, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case - Civil rights. The agent issuing an ICE detainer had probable 
   cause to do so based on the information provided by plaintiff and official 
   files and other government records and he was entitled to qualified 
   immunity on plaintiff's Bivens claim; the county sheriff had no direct 
   participation in the alleged violations of plaintiff's civil rights and 
   was entitled to qualified immunity; the county employees involved in 
   plaintiff's detention reasonably believed plaintiff was another person 
   based on the information provided to them and were entitled to qualified 
   immunity; failure to train and supervise and municipal liability claims 
   were properly rejected as the record showed employees received training 
   and information regarding handling ICE detainers and followed the 
   information and practices; any actions they took could not be attributed 
   to a defective government practice or policy; none of defendants' actions 
   meet the standard necessary for a substantive due process violation, and 
   the conduct in question was, at most, negligent and did not rise to the 
   level of a constitutional violation; civil conspiracy claim rejected as 
   there was no constitutional violation in the case.
