FILE - In this Sept. 22, 2014, file photo, a view of the E. Barrett Prettyman U.S. Courthouse in Washington. An appeals court is deciding whether deputy U.S. marshals who shot and wounded a teenage driver eight years ago may be sued in federal court, a case that's unfolding amid a national debate about police use of force and the legal protections afforded to law enforcement.
