   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas - Little Rock    
   [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Wollman, Bye and Shepherd, Circuit 
   Judges] 
   Criminal case - Criminal law. No error in rejecting defendant's request to 
   present a justification defense in this felon in possession prosecution; 
   even if the court were to recognize a justification defense to a charge 
   under 18 U.S.C. Sec. 922(g), defendant could not establish all of the 
   elements of the defense since, at a minimum, he could not show that he had 
   no reasonable, legal alternative to violating the law. Judge Bright, 
   concurring. 
  
133107P.pdf   07/22/2014  Elliot Hawkins  v.  Gage County
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  13-3107
   U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska - Lincoln    
   [PUBLISHED] [Riley, Author, with Beam and Shepherd, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case - Civil rights. In action alleging police violated plaintiff's 
   due process rights by failing to investigate leads which would have proved 
   his innocence of rape charges and by omitting material facts from an 
   arrest warrant application, there was no evidence officers purposely 
   ignored evidence of his innocence or acted under systematic pressure to 
   implicate him in the face of contrary evidence; as a result neither the 
   investigation nor his detention were reckless or conscience-shocking; none 
   of the omissions from the arrest warrant application constituted a Franks 
   violation and no Fourth Amendment violation was shown.
