Ryburn v. Huff

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-208 9th Cir. Not Argued Jan 23, 2012 TBD Per Curiam OT 2011

Issue: (1) Whether Brigham City v. Stuart merged the emergency doctrine and application of exigent circumstances for evaluating warrantless entry; (2) whether, on the facts of this case, involving a police investigation of a potential plan for a school shooting, officers were free to enter a student’s home without a warrant to prevent possible harm to themselves and others; and (4) whether, when the district court and one circuit judge concluded that the police conduct was arguably valid under another constitutional doctrine, the officers can be denied qualified immunity.

Judgment: Granted, reversed and remanded in a per curiam opinion on January 23, 2012.
