Sause v. Bauer

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
17-742 10th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issue: Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit’s holding—granting qualified immunity to law-enforcement officers who stopped the petitioner from praying silently in her own home because there was no prior case law involving similar facts—conflicts with Hope v. Pelzer, which “expressly rejected a requirement that previous cases be ‘fundamentally similar’” or involve “‘materially similar’ facts.”
