Gilbert v. Bartniczak, et al., No. 10-14714, 2011 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 42288 (E.D. Mich. Apr. 19, 2011)

(civil rights case where plaintiff claims that defendants issued an unconstitutional civil infraction ticket for storing a trailer (on which plaintiff conducts his roadside farm stand) on a vacant lot in violation of a township ordinance; plaintiff claims that he was ticketed in retaliation for giving testimony in federal case against the township for which a judgment was entered against the township; township trustee wrote letter to plaintiff's counsel stating that citation unwarranted and that no action would be taken; plaintiff subsequently sued for civil rights violations; plaintiff's claims dismissed including procedural due process claim - although ticket issued, township made no effort to enforce it, so no decision rendered on any level requiring plaintiff to remove trailer).
