Abstract

McDonough v. Smith follows the Petitioner Edward D. McDonough as he tries to argue that the fabrication of evidence used against him in criminal proceedings falls under the statute of limitations for a Section 1983 claim even though the evidence was terminated in his favor. In this presentation I will take a multi-faceted approach toward this case, including the history of the case, an overview of the statute and its limitations, and an introduction to the malicious prosecution claim brought up by the Petitioner. Next, the positions of both sides will be explained. Lastly, the Supreme Court’s future decision will be with an estimation on what the outcome will be, and what that outcome will mean to the future of the law.
