UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA
HEATHER WEYKER, individually and
in her official capacity as a St. Paul
Police Officer; JOHN DOES 1-2,
individually and in their official
capacities as St. Paul Police Officers;
JOHN DOES 3-4, individually and in
their official capacities as supervisory
members of the St. Paul Police
Department; and THE CITY OF ST.
Case No. 16cv2580 (JNE/TNL)
Plaintiff Ifrah Yassin alleges that she was arrested without probable cause on the basis of
fabricated evidence and material omissions, in violation of her constitutional rights. She was
indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of obstructing justice by attempting to intimidate a
witness in a different federal case, and a jury acquitted her of all charges after a trial. Yassin
sues Defendants Heather Weyker, a police officer for the St. Paul Police Department in
Minnesota; John Does 3-4, members of the St. Paul Police Department who are alleged to have
been Weyker’s supervisors; and the City of St. Paul (“St. Paul”). 1 Weyker moves to dismiss
Yassin’s complaint pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6) for failure to state a
claim and on absolute and qualified immunity grounds. Dkt. No. 22. St. Paul moves on behalf
of the City of St. Paul and John Does 3-4 for judgment on the pleadings. Dkt. No. 28.
Yassin’s complaint also names John Does 1-2 in Count 2, but that count was dismissed
without prejudice by stipulation. See Dkt. No. 42.
The witness whom Yassin was charged with intimidating was a witness in a large
criminal case prosecuted in the Middle District of Tennessee that at its core alleged a widespread
conspiracy to sex-traffic minor girls across Minnesota, Tennessee, and Ohio (“Tennessee Case”).
Thirty people, mostly Somali, were indicted in the Tennessee Case in 2010-2011. Twenty of the
former defendants in that criminal case have brought separate civil suits alleging that Weyker, an
investigator in the Tennessee Case, fabricated evidence, causing them to be arrested and detained
unlawfully. The parties in these twenty-one separate civil cases agreed to coordinated briefing
on the defendants’ motions to dismiss and for judgment on the pleadings. The Court assumes
familiarity with its fuller opinion in one of the related cases, Osman v. Weyker, et al., No.
16cv908 (“Osman Opinion”) (filed simultaneously herewith).
The Court held a hearing on Defendants’ motions on May 3, 2017, and now grants in part
and denies in part Weyker’s motion and grants St. Paul’s motion.
A motion to dismiss or a motion for judgment on the pleadings is appropriately granted
“only when there is no dispute as to any material facts and the moving party is entitled to
judgment as a [m]atter of law.” Greenman v. Jessen, 787 F.3d 882, 887 (8th Cir. 2015) (citation
omitted). To survive a Rule 12 motion, “a complaint must contain sufficient factual matter,
accepted as true, to ‘state a claim to relief that is plausible on its face.’” Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 556
U.S. 662, 678 (2009) (citation omitted); Haney v. Portfolio Recovery Assocs., LLC, 837 F.3d
918, 924 (8th Cir. 2016), as amended (Dec. 27, 2016). See also Osman Op. 3-4.
SUMMARY OF YASSIN’S ALLEGATIONS
On June 16, 2011, Yassin and two friends, Hawo Ahmed and Hamdi Mohamud, were
driving to the mall when Ahmed spotted Muna Abdulkadir. Compl. ¶¶ 8-9. Ahmed told her
friends that she wanted to fight Abdulkadir, without explaining why, and exited the car to
approach Abdulkadir. Compl. ¶ 9. Yassin followed. Id. The two followed Abdulkadir into an
apartment building, where Ahmed confronted her, and Abdulkadir agreed to fight. Compl. ¶ 10.
The three stepped into an elevator and got into a physical altercation. Compl. ¶¶ 10-11. Yassin
did not participate until she felt the need to protect Ahmed, who was pregnant. See Compl. ¶ 11.
The three parted ways, and Abdulkadir proceeded to go to Ahmed’s car, with a knife in hand,
and begin breaking the windows. Compl. ¶¶ 12-13. When Yassin approached, Abdulkadir
lunged at her with the knife. Compl. ¶ 14.
Yassin broke away and called the police for emergency help. Compl. ¶ 15. Minneapolis
Police Department Officer Anthijuan Beeks responded to Yassin’s emergency call, and when he
arrived at the scene, he spoke to Yassin and her friends, treating them as victims of alleged
felony assault and vandalism. Compl. ¶ 17. Before he could find and question Abdulkadir, he
received an urgent call from Weyker. Id.
After observing that Yassin had called the police, Abdulkadir ran and called Weyker.
Compl. ¶ 16. Weyker then got in touch with Beeks. She informed him that she was a St. Paul
police officer, that “Abdulkadir was a key witness in a federal human-trafficking investigation
that Weyker was working on,” and that Weyker “had ‘information and documentation’ that
Yassin, Ahmed, and Mohamud had been actively seeking out Abdulkadir to intimidate her and
cause bodily harm to her because of her role in the federal investigation.” Compl. ¶ 18.
Without confirming that the “information and documentation” existed, Beeks took
Weyker at her word: “her conversation with him ‘changed the situation.’” Compl. ¶ 19. “Based
on Weyker’s representations, Officer Beeks and his supervisor decided to arrest Yassin, Ahmed,
and Mohamud on suspicion of federal witness tampering. The[y] also decided not to arrest
Abdulkadir on state felony assault or vandalism charges.” Compl. ¶ 20. “Beeks told Yassin in
his squad car while driving her to jail that he arrested her based on Officer Weyker’s assertions.”
Compl. ¶ 25.
In fact, Weyker did not have any “information and documentation” about Yassin or her
friends, about whom Weyker had only first learned that very day. Compl. ¶ 21. Yassin had been
out of the country from 2008 to 2011, Compl. ¶ 22, while the Tennessee Case investigation was
ongoing and the indictments were filed. Weyker’s statement to Beeks that she had “information
and documentation” that Yassin had been trying to intimidate and harm Abdulkadir for her role
as a witness was entirely false, and furthermore omitted that Abdulkadir had “previously made
multiple false statements to her.” Compl. ¶¶ 21, 23. Weyker made these false and misleading
statements because “Abdulkadir was a lynchpin of Weyker’s manufactured human-trafficking
case,” the Tennessee Case, in which none of the defendants who stood trial were convicted.
Compl. ¶ 24 & n.2 (citing United States v. Fahra, 643 Fed. Appx. 480 (6th Cir. 2016)). Weyker
“sought to assist Abdulkadir in avoiding criminal charges for her actions against Yassin, Ahmed,
and Mohamud as further incentive for Abdulkadir to continue cooperating with Weyker by
fabricating events and testimony in the human-trafficking case.” Compl. ¶ 24.
After Beeks arrested Yassin, she was temporarily held in custody before being released
on conditions. Compl. ¶ 32. She was indicted on federal charges of witness tampering and
obstruction of justice. Compl. ¶ 25. A jury acquitted her of all charges in July 2013. Id. ¶ 34.
Yassin alleges violations of her rights under the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and/or Fourteenth
Amendments. She also includes allegations relating to supervisory and municipality liability.
SUMMARY OF ARGUMENTS
The parties briefed many issues. They dispute whether Yassin’s claims should be
brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 or if Weyker was acting in a federal capacity at the time of the
alleged violations of Yassin’s rights. To the extent Yassin seeks to bring a claim pursuant to
Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Federal Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971),
Weyker argues that remedies under Bivens are not available in a case like Yassin’s. Yassin
contends that she may pursue her Fourth Amendment and due process claims pursuant to Bivens.
Weyker, in her consolidated briefing, asserts absolute immunity to the extent Yassin’s
allegations rest on Weyker’s grand jury testimony, and Yassin counters that absolute immunity
does not shield Weyker from liability for her pre-testimonial misdeeds. The parties debate
whether Yassin’s due process claims are barred by Parratt v. Taylor, 451 U.S. 527 (1981), and
its progeny. Weyker argues that Yassin’s due process claims also fail because they sound, if at
all, only in the Fourth Amendment, that the due process claims also fail to the extent they are
based on alleged Brady 2 violations because Yassin was not convicted, and that there was at least
arguable probable cause to arrest and detain Yassin. Yassin argues that qualified immunity does
not shield Weyker as to the substantive due process claims because it was clearly established at
the time that it is illegal for a police officer to fabricate evidence, Brady violations have also
been long established, and it is well established that the Fourth Amendment requires a truthful
factual showing of probable cause. As for St. Paul’s motion, the parties dispute whether
Yassin’s allegations adequately plead supervisory and municipal liability in light of Defendants’
assertions of qualified immunity.
As explained fully in the Osman Opinion, pursuant to Manuel v. City of Joliet, 137 S. Ct.
911 (Mar. 21, 2017), Yassin’s claims sound, if at all, in the Fourth Amendment, not the Fifth or
Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963).
Fourteenth. 3 See Osman Op. 11-13; see also id. at 17-22. Her complaint is that “[b]ut for the
testimony manufactured by Weyker, no probable cause existed to detain or otherwise restrict
Yassin’s liberty.” Compl. ¶ 1. In other words, she complains “that a form of legal process
resulted in pretrial detention unsupported by probable cause.” Manuel, 137 S. Ct. at 919. So
“the right allegedly infringed lies in the Fourth Amendment.” Id. A “constitutional division of
labor” applies to claims similar to Yassin’s. Id. at 920 n.8. Thus, because she challenges her
pretrial detention, her claim is under the Fourth Amendment. In contrast, if she had been
convicted and were to challenge the sufficiency of the evidence supporting that conviction, her
claim would then be analyzed under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment
because “once a trial has occurred, the Fourth Amendment drops out: A person challenging the
sufficiency of the evidence to support both a conviction and any ensuing incarceration does so
under the Due Process Clause . . . .” Id. (emphasis added) (citing Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U.S.
307, 318 (1979), and Thompson v. Louisville, 362 U.S. 199, 204 (1960)). Although Yassin did
stand trial, she was acquitted and thus was never punished pursuant to a conviction. So her
claims still are under the Fourth Amendment. Compare with Jackson, 443 U.S. at 316
(describing the due process guarantee “that no person shall be made to suffer the onus of a
criminal conviction except upon sufficient proof”) (emphasis added), and Thompson, 362 U.S. at
206 (holding that it violates due process “to convict and punish a man without evidence of his
guilt”). Yassin’s claims for substantive due process violations under the Fifth or Fourteenth
Yassin and St. Paul filed a stipulation agreeing to the dismissal of her Sixth Amendment
claims in Counts 1 and 4, Dkt. No. 43, which appears to have mooted the parties’ arguments as
to whether Yassin may pursue a Sixth Amendment claim. However, because the stipulation
describes the agreement as “dismiss[ing] without prejudice against the St. Paul City Defendants,”
id., not Weyker specifically, and Weyker’s counsel did not sign the stipulation, it is not entirely
clear that the issue is moot. To the extent that the stipulation did not moot the issue, the Court
finds that Yassin abandoned any argument that she may pursue a Sixth Amendment claim by
failing to respond to Weyker’s arguments for the dismissal of those claims.
Amendments therefore fail. 4 See Manuel, 137 S. Ct. at 919-20; Albright v. Oliver, 510 U.S. 266,
271 (1994) (plurality opinion).
Under the Fourth Amendment analysis, the Court must decide whether Yassin plausibly
alleges that the Defendants violated her right to be free from unreasonable seizure by arresting
and detaining her without arguable probable cause, based on fabricated evidence. 5
“It is clearly established that a warrantless arrest, unsupported by probable cause, violates
the Fourth Amendment.” Small v. McCrystal, 708 F.3d 997, 1003 (8th Cir. 2013) (citation
omitted). “[O]fficers are entitled to qualified immunity if they arrest a suspect under the
mistaken belief that they have probable cause to do so, provided that the mistake is objectively
reasonable.” Id. (citations omitted). “Probable cause exists if the totality of facts based on
reasonably trustworthy information would justify a prudent person in believing the individual
arrested had committed an offense.” Id. (citations omitted). “[I]t is clearly established that the
Fourth Amendment requires a truthful factual showing sufficient to constitute probable cause.”
Hedges v. Poletis, 177 F.3d 1071, 1074 (8th Cir. 1999).
For an arrest pursuant to a warrant, when a plaintiff alleges that some statements in
support of the warrant were untruthful, the court would set aside the untruthful statements and
review the remainder to determine whether probable cause still existed for the arrest. See
Moreover, to the extent Yassin’s due process claims are based on alleged Brady
violations, “[a]ssuming [Weyker] failed to disclose exculpatory evidence, there was no Brady
violation because [Yassin was] not convicted.” Livers v. Schenck, 700 F.3d 340, 359 (8th Cir.
Because the Court finds that only the Fourth Amendment, and not substantive due
process, is applicable; because a Fourth Amendment claim in this case does not present a new
context for a Bivens action; and because § 1983 and Bivens claims are analyzed similarly, the
Court does not reach the question of whether Yassin’s claim should be brought under § 1983 or
Bivens. See Osman Op. 13-17.
Hawkins v. Gage Cty., 759 F.3d 951, 958-59 (8th Cir. 2014); Hernandez-Cuevas v. Taylor, 723
F.3d 91, 101, 105 (1st Cir. 2013).
a. Analysis of Yassin’s Claim Under the Fourth Amendment
In considering whether Yassin plausibly alleges a Fourth Amendment violation, the Court
disregards mere conclusory statements, focuses on well-pleaded factual allegations, and applies
its judicial experience and common sense. See Iqbal, 556 U.S. at 678-79. In ruling on a Rule
12(b)(6) or 12(c) motion, a court accepts the facts alleged in the complaint as true and grants all
reasonable inferences in favor of the plaintiff. Haney, 837 F.3d at 924. The Court also may
consider the court record of Yassin’s criminal case in assessing the pleadings. See, e.g.,
Greenman, 787 F.3d at 887.
Weyker argues that she did not cause Yassin’s arrest. See Weyker Br. 86-88, Dkt. No.
24; Weyker Reply 24-26, Dkt. No. 38. But Yassin specifically alleges that Weyker caused her
arrest by her statements to Beeks, and that Beeks acknowledged as much to Yassin in the squad
car. “Officers remain liable . . . for the reasonably foreseeable acts of actors they deceive.”
Small, 708 F.3d at 1006.
Weyker also contends there was at least arguable probable cause for the arrest. See
Weyker Br. 86-88; Weyker Reply 24-26. The Court views Yassin’s allegations regarding the
warrantless arrest in the light most favorable to her. The basic facts alleged are relatively
straightforward. Yassin alleges that Weyker was the proximate cause of her arrest because she
made a false statement to Beeks, which was the basis for Beeks’ arrest of Yassin. She alleges
specifically that Beeks told her, while driving her to the police station, that he “arrested her based
on Officer Weyker’s assertions.” Compl. ¶ 25. She alleges that there is no way Weyker could
have had “information and documentation” on Yassin because Weyker had never heard of
Yassin, who had been out of the country for several years during the investigation of and
indictments in the Tennessee Case. Yassin further alleges that she had never heard of the
Tennessee Case and never had any contact with Abdulkadir about her role in that case, again
undercutting a possibility that Yassin was seeking to intimidate Abdulkadir because of her role
as a witness, as well as undercutting the possibility that Weyker could have had “documentation”
to that effect. She also pleads a reason why Weyker may have made the false statement, alleging
that Weyker “sought to assist Abdulkadir in avoiding criminal charges for her actions against
Yassin, Ahmed, and Mohamud as further incentive for Abdulkadir to continue cooperating with
Weyker by fabricating events and testimony in the human-trafficking case.” Compl. ¶ 24.
Yassin supports her allegations about Weyker’s supposed role in fabricating evidence in the
Tennessee Case by citing to United States v. Fahra, 643 Fed. Appx. 480 (6th Cir. 2016), an
opinion that the Court discusses in the Osman Opinion, concluding that it lends some plausibility
to Osman’s allegations. Compl. ¶ 24 n.2; see, e.g., Osman Op. 27-28, 35. She also alleges that
she and her co-defendants were acquitted of all charges. The Court finds that these allegations,
viewed as a whole, meet the Iqbal standard and that Weyker is not entitled to qualified immunity
based on these allegations that her misrepresentations directly caused Yassin’s arrest.
Weyker’s arguments for finding that there was arguable probable cause to arrest Yassin
are unavailing at the Rule 12 stage. First, Weyker argues that Yassin’s own admissions that she
and her friend initiated a fight with Abdulkadir and that Abdulkadir was a witness in the
Tennessee Case establish at least arguable probable cause even without any allegedly false
statements by Weyker. But Yassin’s complaint does not allege that Beeks knew, at the time of
the arrest, that Yassin’s friend had initiated the fight. Rather, it alleges that before Beeks spoke
with Weyker, he was operating on the understanding that Abdulkadir was the perpetrator and
Yassin and her friends were the victims. Second, Weyker asks the Court to take judicial notice
of several court documents, including a criminal complaint that was filed against Yassin the day
after her arrest, attached to which is a lengthy affidavit by Weyker. See DOJ Br. 88 n.42 (citing
United States v. Yassin, No. 3:11cr132, No. 1 (M.D. Tenn. June 17, 2011), submitted in this civil
case as Weyker Br. Ex. Q, Dkt. No. 25-1); DOJ Reply 25. Not only does this after-the-fact
affidavit not establish what Beeks knew when he arrested Yassin, or on what grounds he arrested
her, but it is also fair to read Yassin’s complaint as questioning the veracity of Weyker’s
narrative in the affidavit. The other documents that Weyker filed in support of her motion—the
indictment against Yassin, minutes for her first appearance, a motion in limine filed by her
counsel in the criminal proceeding, and the exhibit and witness list from her trial; see DOJ Br. 910—also do not establish Weyker’s entitlement to qualified immunity at the pleadings stage.
b. Supervisory Liability
Yassin also sues John Does 3-4 in their individual capacities as supervisors. She alleges
that they were deliberately indifferent to Weyker’s violations of her rights. See Compl. ¶¶ 29-30.
A supervisor sued in his or her individual capacity in a § 1983 or Bivens suit “is only
liable for his or her own misconduct.” Iqbal, 556 U.S. at 677; see also S.M. v. Krigbaum, 808
F.3d 335, 340 (8th Cir. 2015). “When a supervising official who had no direct participation in
an alleged constitutional violation is sued for failure to train or supervise the offending actor, the
supervisor is entitled to qualified immunity unless plaintiff proves that the supervisor (1)
received notice of a pattern of unconstitutional acts committed by a subordinate, and (2) was
deliberately indifferent to or authorized those acts.” Krigbaum, 808 F.3d at 340 (citing Livers,
700 F.3d at 355). “This rigorous standard requires proof that the supervisor had notice of a
pattern of conduct by the subordinate that violated a clearly established constitutional right.
Allegations of generalized notice are insufficient.” Id. The notice prong requires that “[t]o
impose supervisory liability, other misconduct [allegedly giving the supervisor notice] must be
very similar to the conduct giving rise to liability.” Id. (quoting Livers, 700 F.3d at 356).
Yassin’s complaint contains essentially no well-pleaded facts, only conclusory
allegations, regarding supervisory liability. She alleges that the supervisory defendants “were
aware of Weyker’s fabrication of evidence and multiple courts’ recognition of this fact,” Compl.
¶ 29, and that “[b]y no later than February 15, 2012, they had actual knowledge that Weyker
fabricated evidence on multiple occasions with respect to her human trafficking case,” Compl.
¶ 30. Even assuming these allegations are oblique references to the same court documents that
Osman cited more particularly, the Court would find that these allegations do not sufficiently
plead supervisory liability based on notice, nor establish a pattern of unconstitutional acts by
Weyker, for the same reasons given in the Osman Opinion. See Osman Op. 37-41.
The allegations fail to state a claim for supervisory liability, and John Does 3-4 are
entitled to qualified immunity as to these counts.
c. Municipal Liability
Yassin sues St. Paul as well as Weyker and John Does 3-4 in their official capacities for
municipal liability under Monell v. Department of Social Services of the City of New York, 436
U.S. 658 (1978). “[A] local government may not be sued under § 1983 for an injury inflicted
solely by its employees or agents.” Id. at 694. “Instead,” a municipality is liable “when
execution of a government’s policy or custom, whether made by its lawmakers or by those
whose edicts or acts may fairly be said to represent official policy, inflicts the injury . . . .” Id.
“A plaintiff who sues public employees in their official . . . capacities sues only the public
employer and therefore must establish the municipality’s liability for the alleged conduct.”
Miller v. City of St. Paul, 823 F.3d 503, 506 (8th Cir. 2016) (quoting Kelly v. City of Omaha, 813
F.3d 1070, 1075 (8th Cir. 2016)).
A plaintiff therefore must show that there is an “official” policy or a “custom or usage
with the force of law.” Kelly, 813 F.3d at 1075. A plaintiff must plead “allegations, reference,
or language by which one could begin to draw an inference that the conduct complained of . . .
resulted from an unconstitutional policy or custom.” Crumpley-Patterson v. Trinity Lutheran
Hosp., 388 F.3d 588, 591 (8th Cir. 2004) (citation omitted). “Misconduct among a
municipality’s employees must be ‘continuing, widespread, [and] persistent’ to establish such a
custom.” Kelly, 813 F.3d at 1075 (citation omitted). Also, “the municipality will not be liable
unless policymaking officials exhibit ‘[d]eliberate indifference to or tacit authorization of such
conduct . . . after notice to the officials of that misconduct.’” Id. at 1075-76 (citation omitted).
The question is whether a “governmental policy or custom was the ‘moving force’ that led to the
deprivation of [the plaintiff’s] constitutional rights.” Speer v. City of Wynne, 276 F.3d 980, 986
(8th Cir. 2002). Even if no individual employee is found liable, a municipality might be liable,
but only where “the combined actions of multiple officials or employees may give rise to a
constitutional violation.” Id.
Yassin does not adequately support her conclusory municipal liability allegations. She
does not allege with well-pleaded facts that Weyker or other St. Paul Police Department
employees fabricated evidence in other investigations, nor that policymaking officials in the
department were aware of any previous incidents of fabrication of evidence. She does not allege
well-pleaded facts to support a theory that multiple St. Paul Police Department members
combined to violate his rights. Nor does she allege facts that would demonstrate an official
department policy that moved officers to fabricate evidence and mislead prosecutors and grand
juries to secure indictments. She also does not plausibly allege any such custom because, among
other reasons, she has not adequately alleged notice, as explained above. The defendants sued in
their official capacities, and the City of St. Paul, are entitled to qualified immunity.
Defendants are entitled to qualified immunity on all counts except Counts 1 and 4, which
survive in part. As to Defendants John Does 3-4 and the City of St. Paul, the Court grants their
motions and dismisses with prejudice. See Ulrich v. Pope Cty., 715 F.3d 1054, 1060-61 (8th Cir.
2013); C.N. v. Willmar Pub. Sch., Indep. Sch. Dist. No. 347, 591 F.3d 624, 635 (8th Cir. 2010).
The Court will not grant leave to amend based on a request made in passing at the end of a brief
without complying with local rules or in any way indicating what changes might be made. See
In re Baycol Prod. Litig., 732 F.3d 869, 880 n.8 (8th Cir. 2013).
Based on the files, records, and proceedings herein, and for the reasons stated above, IT
IS ORDERED THAT:
1. Defendants Heather Weyker’s Motion to Dismiss [Dkt. No. 22] is GRANTED IN
PART and DENIED IN PART consistent with the above opinion.
2. Defendant City of Saint Paul’s Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings [Dkt. No. 28] is

4. Counts 1 and 4 of Plaintiff Ifrah Yassin’s Complaint are DISMISSED WITH
PREJUDICE to the extent they plead violations of the Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth
