|14-1143||5th Cir.||Not Argued||Nov 9, 2015||8-1||Per Curiam||OT 2015|
Holding: The Fifth Circuit’s determination that a police officer who shot at a fleeing suspect’s car, killing him, is not entitled to qualified immunity is reversed, because existing precedent did not place the conclusion that the officer acted unreasonably “beyond debate.”
Judgment: Reversed in a per curiam opinion on November 9, 2015. Justice Scalia filed a concurring opinion. Justice Sotomayor filed a dissenting opinion.
