Ortiz v. Jordan, 09–737

In a former inmate's civil rights action under 42 U. S. C. section 1983 seeking a judgment for damages against superintending prison officers for sexual assaults by a corrections officer, the Sixth Circuit's post-verdict decision in favor of prison officials on previously-denied summary judgment arguments of qualified immunity is reversed and remanded where a party may not appeal a denial of summary judgment after a district court has conducted a full trial on the merits.
