A Maryland district court judge has allowed a former Howard University law professor to proceed with allegations of unreasonable search and seizure against Montgomery County police officers over an incident that occurred at the professor’s home, but dismissed several other claims.

Fareed Nassor Hayat, a civil rights and criminal defense lawyer who now serves as the interim senior associate dean for academic affairs and associate professor at City University New York School of Law, filed a civil rights complaint against several individual officers—including the police chief and 10 unnamed “Doe defendants”—as well as Montgomery County in the U.S. District Court for District of Maryland on Oct. 15, 2020. Hayat alleged the officers forcibly entered his home without permission and used excessive force to detain him in 2017, according to the appeals court’s Jan. 27 opinion.
