Brosseau v. Haugen 543 U.S. 194 (2004)

per curiam

Breyer
Stevens dissented from the Court's per curiam decision that ruled that a police officer who shot a suspect fleeing in an automobile was entitled to qualified immunity. Stevens argued that the officer's conduct was objectively unreasonable because deadly force should not have been used to prevent the suspect's escape. He also believed that the immunity issue should have been decided by a jury, and that the Court should have held full briefing and argument on the case.
