Dutra v. Jackson

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
23-377 9th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issues: (1) Whether this court’s precedents the only source of clearly established law for purposes of qualified immunity; and (2) whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit construed clearly established law too abstractly when it denied qualified immunity by citing only its own precedents involving the use of tasers, police dogs, and neck restraints on already handcuffed or subdued suspects when—as the body-cam footage shows—none of those facts were present here.
