Hamlet v. Hoxie

Petition for certiorari denied on December 11, 2023
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
23-7 11th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2023

Issues: (1) Whether it is “clearly established” for purposes of qualified immunity that the Eighth Amendment bars a prison official from forcing a person with diabetes and open wounds to endure prolonged and unnecessary exposure to feces; and (2) whether the court should overrule Procunier v. Navarette and hold that qualified immunity under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 does not extend to a suit alleging that a prison guard subjected the plaintiff to unlawful conditions of confinement, because similar state officials were not immune from similar suits at common law.
