McManus has issued a summary judgment In favor of Linn county Sheriff Walter Grant in connection with a civil rights suit filed against the sheriff liy a Florida man. John W. Dunn had filed an damage suit against (Irani for alleged unlawful in- carceration in Linn county jail for 15 days in early 1973. The judge ruled Grant was acting within the scope of his duties when he ordered Dunn jailed as a result of an Iowa governor's warrant. The war- rant charged Dunn with a fe- lony in Colorado and was is- sued at the request of the Col- orado governor. In his complaint against the sheriff, Dunn claimed the charge for which the warrant was issued June 19. 1972, was dismissed later in the year. Therefore, lie contended, the warrant had no legal life when Dunn was arrested .Ian. 19. 1973. The judge did not rule on that issue but noted that Grant had reason to believe the war- rant was valid when Dunn's arrest was made. Trial of (he suit, filed Feb. 12, had been scheduled for Jan. 20, but both Dunn and persons will benefit from the Grant had filed in November law. for court judgments. A similar suit filed by Dunn was tried in October of 1973 in Linn county court, and a jury ruled in favor of Grant.
