Holding: Prison officials have qualified immunity from a lawsuit, filed by the family of an inmate who committed suicide, which alleged that they had failed to adequately supervise the private contractor that provided medical treatment at the prison facility, because at the time of the incident there was no clearly established law requiring the proper implementation of adequate suicide prevention protocols.
Judgment: Reversed in a per curiam opinion on June 1, 2015.
