Murray v. Lene, 09-1198

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action alleging, inter alia, an unlawful seizure, dismissal of the complaint is affirmed in part where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion by declining to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over plaintiff's remaining state law claims; 2) plaintiff's conspiracy claim failed because the complaint failed to allege a "meeting of the minds" among the alleged conspirators; and 3) recklessness could be inferred from the omission of information from an affidavit only when the material omitted would have been clearly critical to the finding of probable cause.
