A Taste of Justice: What—Then? and Now?, Qualified Immunity (1), Civil Rights Suits
The concept of Qualified Immunity likely will continue to be center-front as cases proceed through the courts against government executive officers for damages for constitutional violations. This presentation offers a taste of three stories. One from over 100 years ago. The second from 50 years ago. And one more recently. Collectively considering these stories present the question why these issues from more than 100 years ago, 50 years ago (May 1970 Kent State shootings and May 1970 Jackson State shootings) are still center-front today.
