Petition for certiorari denied on June 30, 2023
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
22-556 8th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2022

Issues: (1) Whether qualified immunity insulates a law enforcement officer from liability under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 if there is no factually identical precedent establishing the unconstitutionality of that officer’s conduct, or whether a constitutional right can be “clearly established” by precedent with some factual variation so long as the officer has fair notice that his conduct is unconstitutional; and (2) whether the judge-made doctrine of qualified immunity should be narrowed or abolished.
