MARSHALL v. TESKE, 01-2722, 01-2793

Where plaintiff in section 1983 claim was a young boy who police detained and arrested even after a search produced no evidence linking him to a crime, and upon arrest, an officer pulled down plaintiff's pants and underwear and refused to let him call his parents or attorney, the jury had sufficient evidence to find that officers demonstrated a callous disregard for plaintiff's constitutional rights, and award of punitive damages was appropriate.
