Cobb v. JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A., 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 2867 (9th Cir. Feb. 26, 2015):
The district court properly dismissed Cobb's claims against the federal court defendants because they are entitled to quasi-judicial immunity. See Mullis v. U.S. Bankr. Court, 828 F.2d 1385, 1390 (9th Cir. 1987) ("Court clerks have absolute quasi-judicial immunity from damages . . . when they perform tasks that are an integral part of the judicial process" unless they acted "in the clear absence of all jurisdiction."); see also Ashelman v. Pope, 793 F.2d 1072, 1078 (9th Cir. 1986) (en banc) ("[A]llegations that a conspiracy produced a certain decision should [*2] no more pierce the actor's immunity than allegations of bad faith, personal interest or outright malevolence.").
