Secret Service Agent Found Liable for Violating Fourth Amendment at the DNC
Last Friday, March 12, a federal jury found Secret Service agent Darin Czellecz liable for violating the Fourth Amendment rights of Vijay Shah at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Boston in July 2004. Shah had filed a civil suit against two agents, Czellecz and JW Holloway, as a response to being detained and interrogated without reasonable suspicion during a march protesting the DNC. Quoted in an article on IndiaWest.com, Shah said “All of a sudden, two guys grabbed me from behind and shoved me into an alley, then forced me to sit down on some steps and handcuffed me.” Shah was held for about five hours while being interrogated. John Pavlos, a lawyer, intervened with the police on Shah's behalf, but was not allowed to be present during the interrogation. Pavlos also represented Shah in the lawsuit.
