Just picked up my first 1983 case and I’m looking for the Bible on litigating 1983 claims. I’m digging my way through case law now to get a general overview of the landscape, but I’m going to want to learn from the best and brightest on this. If it matters, claim will be in the 8th circuit and it relates to a client who caught a rubber bullet with their face. I know the unlawful assembly case law is against us, and it doesn’t appear an actual seizure occurred, so this is going to be tricky.

I’m a recent college hire and my Manager on my project has delegated a lot of work to me that I feel like an experienced senior associate or even an M should be doing. She walks me through everything I need to do but has said she wants me to be the person our project team go to even if that means I go back to her for support. Is this her way of teaching me or am I being take advantaged?
