Jones v. Wang, 12-55995

In a civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. section 1983, alleging violations of plaintiffs' Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights and various torts during doctor-defendant's investigation into whether plaintiff's child has been abused, the district court's denial of defendant's motion for summary judgment is affirmed where plaintiffs could support a finding that defendant's actions of seizing the infant child from plaintiffs and holding him in a hospital over a weekend were not entitled to qualified immunity.
