§1983 – QUALIFIED IMMUNITY
Because the Fourth Amendment permitted police officers to enter a residence if they had a reasonable basis for concluding that there was an imminent threat to their safety and the safety of others, they were entitled to qualified immunity despite the lack of a warrant. See “Officers entitled to qualified immunity despite warrantless entry.” U.S. Supreme Court. Ryburn v. Huff, No. 11-208. Jan. 23, 2012. Lawyers USA No. 993-3510.
