      KALINA v. FLETCHER (96-792)
      93 F.3d 653, affirmed.

      SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES


      No. 96—792

      LYNNE KALINA, PETITIONER v. RODNEY FLETCHER

      ON WRIT OF CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT

      [December 10, 1997]
          Justice Stevens delivered the opinion of the Court.

          The question presented is whether 42 U.S.C. § 1983 creates a damages remedy against a prosecutor for making false statements of fact in an affidavit supporting an application for an arrest warrant, or whether, as she contends, such conduct is protected by “the doctrine of absolute prosecutorial immunity.”

      I

          Petitioner is a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for King County, Washington. Following customary practice, on December 14, 1992, she commenced a criminal proceeding against respondent by filing three documents in the King County Superior Court. Two of those documents–an information charging respondent with burglary and a motion for an arrest warrant–were unsworn pleadings. The burglary charge was based on an alleged theft of computer equipment from a school.
