Police, The Fourth Amendment, Qualified Immunity

RADCHUCK v. CITY OF CITRUS HEIGHTS, No. 2:11-CV-00486-JAM-CKD (E.D. California, November 14, 2012)

Judge John A. Mendez is very, very brief in explaining his dismissal of an excessive force claim:

(3) Whether Officer Hatchell’s Use of his Firearm Was Reasonable: The Court finds that Officer Hatchell’s use of his firearm was constitutionally reasonable and relies, in part, on the decision of Brosseau v. Haugen, 543 U.S. 194 (2004) in reaching that conclusion. Accordingly, this theory is dismissed with prejudice.

Seems like he could have, and should have, spilled a bit more ink about this.
