“Sparkman and Waco examined the definition of a judicial act though the lens of maliciousness, and, in granting immunity, the Court slammed the door on one of the possible exceptions mentioned in Randall. In Dennis v. Sparks, 449 U.S. 24 (1980), the Court expressly extended that reasoning to include allegations of corruption.”
