Police, The Fourth Amendment, Qualified Immunity

Fifth Circuit uses “QI” as an abbrevation for “qualified immunity”

As reg readers know, (royal) we love the abbreviation “qi” for “qualified immunity” here at the police4aqi blog.  This is the first time we can recall seeing the abbreviation in a court opinion:

Cooper v. Brown, Court of Appeals, 5th Circuit 2016

In the opinion, the court found that the policeman (Officer Lynn Brown, employer not given in the opinion) may have let his K9 unit chew too long on a compliant arrestee’s leg.  No qi.
