Argument in Hernandez v. Mesa

Good luck to Steve Vladeck in this morning's argument in Hernandez v. Mesa, on whether a U.S. law enforcement officer can be sued for damages in a Bivens action for killing a non-U.S. person on the other side of the border.

Update: Transcript here.

Very important case. Just worth to note, that what complicates the case ( among others ) is the fact, that the killing officer, stood on US soil at the time of the killing ( killing Mexican national on Mexican soil ). So, correct as been stated in the post "for killing a non-U.S. person on the other side of the border", yet, the shooter, stood on US soil, while killing.That's hell of one.

Thanks
