New Orleans U.S. Atty. Says 2 FBI Agents Should Be Immuned From Brutality Lawsuit

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Orleans insists two FBI agents should have immunity under the law from a lawsuit involving a videotaped beating of a retired school teacher.
The teacher, Robert Davis, has filed a civil rights suit against New Orleans police officers and the the two agents Stephen Noh and Trent Miley.
In a motion filed Tuesday, U.S. Attorney Jim Letten’s office stated that because they were federal agents on the job, “Under the Federal Tort Claims Act, defendants Miley and Noh are improper defendants.”
“Therefore, a federal officer acting under the color of the law, such as defendants Noh and Miley are not subject to suit,” the motion said.
Davis’ lawsuit alleges that on Oct. 8, 2005 he was walking through the French Quarter and asked an officer about a curfew. After that, police officers and the FBI agents forced him to the ground and punched him repeatedly.
