The violations were committed while Clarke was sheriff. The county is being held accountable.

The county knew it had a bad seed on its hands long before this incident. Not enough people have figured out that officials out to make a name for themselves and monetize their positions should be cut loose so that the budding media whore can pursue their desires unfettered and not under any financial responsibility by the city, county, or state.

Let David Clarke be a dick on his own time and on his own dime.

The thread title is a little clumsy/vague. And the court document sort of reads like a long court document.

Can you summarize what (if anything) has been concluded by the courts....??
It is a court document,

Please read it. or not.

That is the whole center complaint, if you recall, Clarke was taken to the woodshed for his use of law enforcement as his personal body guards.

And he called for the National Guard to crush protesters, that landed him in the unfortunate position of having to resign.

Mass Protest Against Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke About To Go Down

So couple that with the charges brought against him for denying water to a mental impaired inmate, resulting in that person's death, and having an inmate chained to a bed while she gave birth, I am not surprised at all at this lawsuit.

He deserves to be reminded, that no one is above the law.

WE liberals were supposed to embrace this guy cause he's black. Or at least lay off! Dare we point out that every time we point out the POS' batshit crazy antics, WE are labeled RACIST! That's because the fucking idiots that call us that STILL don't understand what racism is.
The guy is an asshole; he could be purple with mayonnaise as a skin cream for all I care.

I have not read the entire document, though I may if someone wants a brief analysis of the issues. However, for simplicity's sake, this summary of the document should do.

The introduction to the court's order:

This action arises from an encounter on an airplane between former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (“Clarke”) and the plaintiff, Daniel Black (“Black”), which led to airport questioning and a social media spat. Black accuses Clarke of First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendment violations, and seeks to hold both him and Milwaukee County liable.

On September 11, 2017, the defendants filed a motion for summary judgment. (Docket #15). Black responded on October 11, 2017, (Docket #25), and the defendants replied on October 25, 2017 (Docket #29). For the reasons explained below, the defendants’ motion will be granted in part and denied in part. The surviving claim will proceed to a jury trial.
The court's orders following an analysis of the issues:

Black has raised a triable issue of fact as to his claim for First Amendment retaliation based on Clarke’s Facebook posts. Unless otherwise resolved, that claim will proceed to a jury trial as scheduled for January 22, 2018 (Docket #13). As to the balance of Black’s claims, the defendants are entitled to judgment as a matter of law. [Footnote omitted.]

Accordingly,

IT IS ORDERED that Black’s motion for leave to untimely file materials in opposition to summary judgment (Docket #28) be and the same is hereby GRANTED;

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the defendants’ motion to seal Exhibit A to the Declaration of Brian Barkow (Docket #20) be and the same is hereby GRANTED;

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the defendants’ motion for summary judgment (Docket #15) be and the same is hereby GRANTED in part and DENIED in part as stated in this Order;

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Black’s claims under the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments, his claim under the First Amendment based on the airport interrogation, and his Monell claim be and the same are hereby DISMISSED; and

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that defendants Milwaukee County and John Does One through Six be and the same are hereby DISMISSED.
This basically means that one of the plaintiff's claims will proceed to trial two weeks from tomorrow. Certain claims received summary judgment (i.e., judgment against the plaintiff without trial), and others were dismissed. Additionally, one of the exhibits to someone's declaration (an affidavit that is not notarized, which holds the same legal status) is being sealed for a reason discussed in the Order, but which I did not review.
