Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-1042 5th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issue: Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit erred in holding that although a reasonable juror could conclude that it was clearly unreasonable for a law-enforcement officer to fire multiple bullets at an unarmed, non-threatening suspect from 90 yards away—only seconds after first seeing him—the law in this country is not “clearly established” enough for a reasonable law-enforcement officer to make the same conclusion.
