Moore-Jones v Quick 8thCIR 28NOV2018

This case is a civil suit against a law enforcement officer for injuries sustained by the plaintiff when her car was knocked into a culvert during a PIT maneuver. The defendant had fled after a traffic stop was made and LEOs deployed the PIT maneuver at 35 MPH at the last exit only a mile and a half from a city.  The District Court denied qualified immunity but the Eighth Circuit reversed holding that the right to be free from a PIT maneuver in these circumstances was not “clearly established.”
