US v. Cowden, 174046

Affirming the district court's judgment in admitting evidence of a former police officer's prior uses of force, instructions on the elements of the offense were proper, and the officer, convicted of deprivation of rights under color of law, could be held liable for injuries the victim sustained when arrested by another law enforcement officer because the government met the specific proof burden to hold him liable.
