Two on qualified immunity

EMTs who assessed plaintiff for mental issues and took her away were entitled to qualified immunity. No case could be cited that they violated the Fourth Amendment. Ellison v. Hobbs, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 26263 (11th Cir. Aug. 29, 2019).*

Social workers don’t get qualified immunity at the pleading stage because it has been settled for a decade in this circuit that their actions were a potential violation of due process and the Fourth Amendment. Romero v. Brown, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 26249 (5th Cir. Aug. 29, 2019).*
