| No. 16-6597|
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Middle District of Tennessee at Columbia.
No. 1:14-cv-00150—William J. Haynes Jr., District Judge.
Argued: June 21, 2017
Decided and Filed: August 28, 2017
Before: BOGGS, GRIFFIN, and WHITE, Circuit Judges.
BOGGS, Circuit Judge. This suit involves three main questions: (1) whether plaintiff
Randall Mills sufficiently pleaded a claim for malicious prosecution under 42 U.S.C. § 1983;
(2) whether Mills sufficiently pleaded a claim for fabrication of evidence under § 1983; and
(3) whether Mills sufficiently pleaded a Brady claim. The district court found that Mills had not
so pleaded and granted defendant Sharon Jenkins’s motion to dismiss on those claims. We
reverse the district court on all three issues, holding that the complaint contains the requisite facts
to constitute viable claims on all counts.
