How to Become a Bounty Hunter

This could get interesting.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Colorado resident Steven Howards can sue two Secret Service agents who arrested him after he touched Vice President Dick Cheney’s arm in 2006 and told him that his Iraqi war policies were disgusting, the Associated Press reported.

AP reported Howards’ attorney said he plans to subpoena Cheney to testify about the incident.

“I fully intend on deposing the former vice president,” attorney David Lane told The Associated Press. The Secret Service agents had argued that they were immune from being sued.

AP reported that a three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Howards can sue agents Virgil D. “Gus” Reichle Jr. and Dan Doyle on First Amendment grounds. The court, did however rule that two other agents were immune in the case.
