The United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts has dismissed federal civil rights claims that were based upon the Town’s response to a Massachusetts trial court subpoena ordering production of records relating to the plaintiff. The plaintiff alleged that East Longmeadow’s conduct of producing documents for use at a trial as commanded by the subpoena violated her Fourteenth Amendment right to equal protection, her right to privacy, and her liberty rights. The court determined that plaintiff’s allegations failed to support claims against both the Town and its employees.
