Dismissal of Suit Against Parole Commissioner Reversed

The plaintiff alleged that a parole commissioner delayed his release for several months without justification. The district court should not have dismissed on grounds of absolute immunity without a record showing whether the commissioner's actions were quasi-adjudicative (warranting immunity) or administrative (not warranting immunity). See: King v. Simpson, 189 F.3d 284 (2d Cir. 1999).
