Iqbal v. Hasty (notes)
Helps to clarify plausibility rules.  Nobody knew whether to only apply Twombly to anti trust cases or others?  Iqbal was an Arab Muslim arrested and detained cruelly after 9/11.  Then released for no evidence.  Sued Ashcroft, saying he was treated solely due to his race and religion, but no direct evidence of this.

H - Apply plausibility across the board, not just antitrust.  It was not plausible that Iqbal was held due solely to his race and religion, b/c it was equally likely that the reasons for detention were not discriminatory.  STRONG DISSENT, who said all the govt knew about him was his race and religion, so how could they have held him for any other reason?
