Stefan Underhill is a United States District Judge for the District of Connecticut, resident in Bridgeport. He was appointed by President Bill Clinton on July 7, 1999, and entered on duty Sept. 1, 1999. Activist through and through.

A Connecticut federal judge ruled against the government and will allow illegal immigrants to sue ICE agents for civil rights violations.

U.S. District Court Judge Stefan Underhill ruled Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials are not immune from lawsuits if they are anchored on Constitutional grounds.

The civil rights lawsuit, brought by 11 alleged illegal immigrants claim they were unlawfully apprehended by ICE agents in New Haven, Conn, June 2007.

Washington Colala and law student Mark Pedulla are charging that federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents violated the constitution during their June 2007 raids on New Haven homes. He’s one of 11 plaintiffs who say ICE agents entered their homes illegally and violated their 4th, 5th, and 10th Amendment rights.

The plaintiff’s attorneys told The New Haven Register “the decision has wide-ranging implications.”

Judge Underhill refused the government’s plea to dismiss the charges against ICE agents and their supervisors, including Julie Myers ICE’s former agency head.

A group of law school interns and their bosses at Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization at the Yale Law School brought the lawsuit on behalf of the illegal aliens. The interns argued that the 11 suspected illegal aliens were unfairly treated based on race.
