This case concerned the prosecution of Cole Dotson, a Special Agent of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) for three counts of manslaughter pursuant to California Penal Code § 192(c)(1), arising out of a horrific motor vehicle crash during a surveillance and pursuit of a narcotics smuggler in Imperial County, California, north of the Port of Entry at the U.S.-Mexico border at Calexico. The case is an excellent backdrop to a discussion of the dynamics of federal Supremacy Clause immunity.
