Maryland man not allowed to sue

Robert Seremeth can't sue police in Maryland who handcuffed his hands behind his back, forcing him to keel on a cement walkway with no way to communicate with them. Seremeth did not know why he was being detained for about 45 minutes until an officer gave him a note, explaining an interpreter had been called to the scene while they investigated a domestic abuse call. A federal judge in Maryland ruled that officers did not violate his rights, even though Seremeth was never charged with any crime. An appeals court has now sided with the police.
