|Docket No.||Op. Below||Argument||Opinion||Vote||Author||Term|
|13-551||5th Cir.||Not Argued||May 5, 2014||N/A||Per Curiam||OT 2013|
Holding: Because the Fifth Circuit failed to adhere to the fundamental principle that, at the summary judgment stage, reasonable inferences should be drawn in favor of the non-moving party, the decision below is vacated and remanded so that the Fifth Circuit can determine whether, when the evidence offered by the petitioner -- who was shot by the respondent, a police officer -- is properly credited and factual inferences are reasonably drawn in his favor, the police officer’s actions violated clearly established law.

Check out the latest Relist Watch from @johnpelwood.
TEN new relists -- including 6 involving Pres. Trump/Trump Admin initiatives that strangely skipped the Jan. 15 conference: Emoluments Clause suits, Public Charge Rule, Title X abortion/counseling rule. Plus a call to revisit regulatory takings & Nevada's COVID restrictions. https://twitter.com/SCOTUSblogposts/status/1352358829317648384
