For Wednesday

Monday audio.

We continue with Qualified Immunity. What is the standard for qualified immunity, what does each prong require, and how does it apply? How did it evolve to that standard? What can we conclude about qualified immunity from the recent SCOTUS summary reversals (White, Tyler, and Tolan)? What is the question over "order of battle" and how did the Court resolve it and why? In looking at that, what else do we want § 1983 cases to achieve in terms of the law?

In addition to the Puzzles assigned, consider this Complaint; accepting the allegations as true, can the defendant prevail on qualified immunity?
