In Thevenin v. French, No. 19-3085-cv, 2021 WL 961081 (2d Cir. March 15, 2021), the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit affirmed a decision and order issued by the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York, Thevenin v. French, 1:16-CV-1115, 2019 WL 4242247 (N.D.N.Y. Sept. 6, 2019) (Stewart, M.J., on consent), which had denied that portion of defendants’ motion for summary judgment that was based on their defense of qualified immunity.

The FCBA’s Sixth Annual Essay Contest received more than three-dozen entries from high school students across the Northern District, including video entries posted on YouTube, Instagram and TikTok.
