Current Issues in Qualified Immunity for Law Enforcement Officials

A vital principle governing lawsuits against law enforcement officers is the qualified immunity defense. The Supreme Court and lower federal court have grappled with this defense for decades. It is essential that officers and lawyers, who either defend or file lawsuits against officers, be familiar with all aspects of qualified immunity and its applications in different scenarios. This on-demand webinar will help those on both sides of law enforcement litigation in that qualified immunity will cause a 42 U.S.C. § 1983 lawsuit to either fail or succeed. Qualified immunity has been a dynamic factor in this type of litigation because officers are sued in federal court with regard to virtually every aspect of police work: investigations, arrests, use of force, handcuffing, shootings, tasering, pepper spray use, positional asphyxia, chokeholds, the use of police canines, and issues involving medical care for arrestees and prisoners. Proper knowledge of qualified immunity is vital to the defense or prosecution of civil rights lawsuits.
