Abstract In an action brought under 42 U.s.c. sec. 1983, the Supreme Court, led by Justice Rehnquist, reversed a federal district court's attempt to end a pattern of illegal and unconstitutional police mistreatment of citizens. Rizzo v. Goode, 44 LW 4095, was decided on January 21; 1976 and is the resting spot for litigation which lasted six years.
