CA6: Officer firing gun at a person he or she doesn’t know fired one, too, is excessive

Officers fired at plaintiff without knowing whether he was the one who fired a gun at them. The sound of racking a bullet into a gun’s chamber in the abstract was not enough. LeFtwich v. Driscoll, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 12399 (6th Cir. May 19, 2023).*

The collective knowledge doctrine applies to all the information held by DEA agents working on the case. United States v. Gomez, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 88366 (E.D. Mich. May 19, 2023).*

Lack of a LPN in plain view justified defendant’s stop. State v. Flack, 2023-Ohio-1705 (3d Dist. May 22, 2023).*

Prison guards get qualified immunity for a prison strip search after the inmate’s family visitation. There was no showing it was harassing to attempt to justify relief. Johnson v. Uherka, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 12460 (7th Cir. May 22, 2023).*
