In this episode, Andy and Larry discuss a case before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that has already been decided. The plaintiffs in the case sought damages from high-ranking Michigan officials, alleging that they oversaw and failed to stop unconstitutional actions by the police. The district court initially dismissed the complaint on various grounds, including sovereign immunity, and the plaintiffs appealed to the Sixth Circuit. The Sixth Circuit ultimately affirmed the district court’s decision, stating that the plaintiffs failed to state a claim of supervisory liability.
During their discussion, Andy and Larry recall their previous conversation about the case, where Larry expressed skepticism about the plaintiffs’ arguments and predicted an unfavorable outcome. They discuss the issues raised in the complaint, including due process violations, retroactive punishments, and first amendment infringement. Larry criticizes the sloppy litigation and the plaintiffs’ failure to provide sufficient evidence to support their claims. They also touch upon the issues of sovereign immunity and the plaintiffs’ attempt to hold the defendants liable based on supervisory control. The court found that the plaintiffs did not plausibly allege that the defendants authorized or knowingly acquiesced in the unconstitutional conduct, and that the allegations of knowledge were weak. The court emphasized that failure to intervene is not the same as granting authorization.
In summary, the case involved Michigan officials being sued for their alleged failure to stop unconstitutional actions by the police. The court ultimately dismissed the case, stating that the plaintiffs failed to provide enough evidence to support their claims of supervisory liability.

The Registry Matters Podcast’s mission is to cover issues surrounding the Registry. We cover cases that will peel back the veneer of what we need to do to change our lives for the better. We cover news articles that spark conversations about the total insanity of this modern-day witch hunt. This podcast will call out bad policy and call out those that are making bad policy.
To change things for the positive, we need to act. We are 6-7-8-900k strong. With that many people, plus their friends and family, over a million people are affected by the registry. We should be able to secure donations to hire lawyers and lobbyists to move the agenda in our favor. We need our people to be represented.
