Dockets.Justia.com Case: 10-6491 Document: 11 Date Filed: 10/29/2010 Page: 2 PER CURIAM: Dave Andrae Taylor, a federal prisoner, filed a complaint pursuant to Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Fed. Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971), seeking damages on the ground that Defendants failed to advise him prior to his conviction of drug and firearms offenses of his rights under Article 36 of the Vienna Convention. The district court dismissed the action without prejudice, concluding that Taylor's action was barred by the holding in Heck v. Humphrey, 512 U.S. 477 (1994). We have reviewed the record and the district court's order and conclude that pursuant to Sanchez-Llamas v. Oregon, 548 U.S. 331 (2006), the action was not barred by the holding in Heck. Accordingly, we vacate the district court's order dismissing Taylor's action without prejudice and remand for further proceedings oral consistent with this opinion. and We legal dispense with argument because the facts contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process. VACATED AND REMANDED 2
