    SCOTUS to consider 13 cases on qualified immunity

    This sounds like a biggie:

    Among the cases the SCOTUS will review at the Friday (01 May) conference will be 11 cases challenging a grant of qualified immunity and two cases challenging the withholding of qualified immunity. Most involve police officers, but four include other state officials.

    It would be hard, if not impossible, to do our jobs without it. I was sued civilly and district Federal judge denied qualified immunity to me. I did nothing wrong and they want my house, car, all assets. 7th Circuit overturned my denial thankfully. This has been hanging over my head for the last 5 years and we are not done yet. If they do away with it, I'll stop making arrests. It's just not worth it. Letting bag guys go is better than losing everything I've worked for.
    On the other side of fear lies freedom.

    How does that work? Do you request dismissal of the case on Q/I grounds, and if the judge refuses it, that means the case can go forward?

    It's still an active case so details will be left out. This states the general issue well. https://www.fletc.gov/sites/default/...edImmunity.pdf
