This month, the United States Supreme Court issued a remarkable opinion that could pave the way to repealing qualified immunity. That doctrine — which shields government workers from accountability when they violate the constitution — relies on the policy that government workers should rarely be subject to lawsuits for money damages. But in Tanzin v. Tanvir, a unanimous Supreme Court said that it is not its business to do policy. In addition, it held that damages are not only an appropriate remedy against government workers who violate the Constitution, but that “this exact remedy has coexisted with our constitutional system since the dawn of the Republic.”



Damn. So now if police violate a protesters Constitutional right to protest by arrest, use of force, or other means...

Looks like the protections free ride is over.
 
Well, yeah. It's called the Seventh Amendment.

Good to see they are taking their job seriously
 
I sure hope so. I noted that when Trump nominated Barrett that she had previously ruled against qualified immunity and that I hoped she would get a shot at it on the Supreme Court.
 
Well, yeah. It's called the Seventh Amendment.

After reading the article, I just started imagining all of the ways local police can now be held accountable for any number of violations, that they were immune from before the decision.
Yeah and when you need your local police to come to your aid, good luck with that. You people have already made their job almost impossible to do, and because of your blanket partying them, many have had enough sense to get the hell out while they still can. No police force can operate correctly in the environment the leftist have created for them now, otherwise with the setting them up, disrespecting their authority, hating on them, and worse trying to kill them. Leftist are some sick mental people, who have the stubborn mind's of a jackass. The methods in which the leftist operate is completely anti-American.

Yep, following the constitution is unfair. What the heck was written for then?

The thread is saying that the Supreme Court should.

it will also apply to government bureaucrats overreaching, like Child Services people gunning for people's kids, and other functionaries overstepping their bounds.

Oh boy, let's see how good their misplaced fantasies work in that department. Already crime in Democrat run crap holes is up by leaps and bounds.

The crats only care about power concentrated among their ranks, but to hell with those beneath them that are direct recipients of their wrecklace and destructive ways in which are a result of the bullcrap.

They don't give anything from their personal wealth to the common folk (Trump didn't even take his pay to be president), but the Democrat politician's masterfully make hard working American's pay for everything that the base gets, who then run blindly down to vote for democrooks as if they opened up their personal bank accounts to give them what they get, and then gave it to them for the loyalty of their vote.

What a flipping set up they have folks, and Democrat loving American's use it every chance that they get to their utter destruction and confusion in the end.

This is indeed an important development.

Well, that would logically seem to be the case as the bureaucracy is, after all, the administrative level of the executive branch. But until I see the Court routinely hearing and overthrowing the flagrant and now decades-long violations of natural law, particularly at the state level as it pertains to parental consent and authority. . . . SCOTUS, particularly because of the likes of Kennedy and now Roberts, who seems to be the new swing vote of popular culture's mobocratic whims, has so far failed to curtail abuse. Perhaps Trump's additions to the Court will turn the tide. If we the people cannot direct the values of our progeny, then we certainly can't maintain the ownership of our households and the destiny of our nation.

As long as "protesters" are not setting buildings on fire, blocking traffic, beating people up and looting......that isn't protesting.
