Police, The Fourth Amendment, Qualified Immunity

Judge Sarah Johnson Coleman makes a sensible observation

with one comment

Case:  RIKAS v. BABUSCH, Dist. Court, ND Illinois 2016


[The police] point to the eyewitness account of Daniel Carrillo, a bystander who testified that [police officer] Babusch “put [plaintiff] to the ground” in order to get handcuffs on her. . . .  Carrillo’s description that Rikas was “put . . . to the ground” tells the Court very little about the level of force exerted.

Decision: No qi for Metra police officer Thomas Babusch on excessive force and false arrest claims.
