Tr.Aud.
Jan 10, 2012 8-1 Breyer OT 2011

Holding: Because state tort law authorizes adequate alternative damages actions in this case, no Bivens remedy can be implied.

Judgment: Reversed, 8-1, in an opinion by Justice Breyer on January 10, 2012. Justice Scalia wrote a separate concurring opinion, which was joined by Justice Thomas, but also joined the Court’s opinion. Justice Ginsburg filed a dissenting opinion.
