Case: Eden v. Vaughn, Dist. Court, ED Missouri 2016

C’mon, Judge E. Richard Webber.  If you think real hard, you can think of a few possibilities — not that these possible motivations would be susceptible to proof by the plaintiff.

The decision, as a whole, is fine.  Summary judgement (sj) of qualified immunity (qi) is denied.  Just wish the courts would start attaching videos to decisions like this that have relevant dashcam vid.
