A Taste of Justice: What—Then? and Now? (2) Qualified Immunity, Civil Rights Lawsuits
This presentation covers basic principles of Qualified Immunity as the United States Supreme Court has interpreted. Section 1983 provides: every person, acting under color of law, who deprives another of constitutional rights, shall be liable. The Court’s principles of qualified immunity have received some criticisms that the Court’s interpretations and expansions of the qualified immunity defense have detracted from the goals of Section 1983 of compensating injured individuals and deterring government misconduct.
