W.D.Wash.: Photographing the naked body of unconscious Taser victim in the hospital stated a claim and overcame QI

Plaintiff was unconscious in the hospital when the defendants manipulated her naked body to photograph Taser marks. She stated a claim under a 1963 Ninth Circuit case that overcame qualified immunity. Young v. Pena, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 131641 (W.D. Wash. Aug. 6, 2019).*

There were fact questions for trial on whether the warrantless entry to arrest was by consent, so qualified immunity is denied. Coffey v. Carroll, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 23306 (6th Cir. Aug. 5, 2019).*
