Scott County, Tennesse v. Brawner

Petition for certiorari denied on October 3, 2022
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
21-1210 6th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2022

Issue: Whether the Supreme Court should apply the subjective test for deliberate indifference set forth in Farmer v. Brennan to claims by pretrial detainees of inadequate medical care when the application of the solely objective standard in Kingsley v. Hendrickson to these claims fails to consider the difference between action and inaction, results in the constitutionalization of medical malpractice, and creates the only situation in which a person can be held personally liable for violating the constitutional rights of another without committing any intentional act.
