Griffin v. Baltimore Police Dep't, 14-1494

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action following plaintiff's release from custody after post-conviction proceedings uncovered numerous Brady violations relating to his 1982 murder conviction, the district court's dismissal of his claims is affirmed where Heck v. Humphrey, 512 U.S. 477 (1994), bars plaintiff from filing a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 case seeking damages based on Brady violations when his conviction is still valid.
