CA6: Not telling officers during arrest and transport of pre-existing injury gives them QI

“Detroit police arrested Baxter Jones for disorderly conduct. They transported Jones, who uses a wheelchair, in a modified cargo van. Jones says riding in the van aggravated his spinal injuries and hurt his shoulders and hands. The district court denied the officers’ motion for summary judgment based on qualified immunity. But the officers did not violate clearly established law based on Jones’s observable physical needs, and Jones did not ask them to treat him differently. We reverse.” Jones v. City of Detroit, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 21959 (6th Cir. July 14, 2020).*

The affidavits for the search warrant for allegedly illegally taken crab were based on probable cause. If there were false statements, they weren’t material to the finding of probable cause. Shopbell v. Wash. State Dep’t of Fish & Wildlife, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 124119 (W.D. Wash. July 14, 2020).*
