17-1572 8th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issues: (1) Whether there is interlocutory appellate jurisdiction to review the district court’s assessment that disputed facts establish a triable question on whether, in this deadly force case, it was reasonable to believe that the suspect posed a significant threat of death or serious bodily harm when he was shot; and (2) whether there is interlocutory appellate jurisdiction to review the district court’s assessment that a fact dispute establishes a dispute on another fact that is not a legal element essential to liability.
