Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
20-182 6th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2020

Issue: Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit contradicted a fundamental principle of the Supreme Court’s qualified-immunity precedent when it denied qualified immunity to the petitioners, Rita Stanback and Frank Tennant, on the grounds that their challenged conduct violated clearly established law and premised its determination solely upon cases that were decided after the petitioners’ challenged conduct.
