Minneci v. Pollard

Yesterday the Supreme Court granted certiorari to decide whether prisoners may bring a cause of action under Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Federal Bureau of Narcotics against employees of a private company that contracts with the federal government, where the employees do not have a direct employment relationship with the government. Despite encompassing prisoner rights as well, this case does bring forward important issues that surround almost all of employment law: by whom exactly are you employed and against whom can you bring a cause of action?
