CA7: QI barred § 1983 over forced prison blood draw

Plaintiff is an inmate in prison who was ordered to give a blood test when prison officials decided he wasn’t acting right and might be high. His suit over the prison’s forced blood draw is barred by qualified immunity. Holm v. Casiana, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 3714 (7th Cir. Feb. 6, 2019).*

The evidence fairly supported the conclusion there was probable cause for defendant’s arrest. There were five search warrants in all in the case, and there was probable cause for all of it, and the good faith exception does not need to be addressed. People v. Westerfield, 2019 Cal. LEXIS 637 (Feb. 4, 2019).*
