Berwyn Heights Mayor Cheye Calvo's lawsuit against Prince George's County's
sheriff, in which he accuses county sheriff's officers of storming into his home
without a proper warrant, can proceed without waiting for federal review, a

in the civil lawsuit, which regards the actions of a SWAT team that stormed into
Calvo's home in 2008, fatally shooting the family's two dogs.
