Ashaheed v. Currington

Ashaheed v. Currington

The Tenth Circuit will decide whether qualified immunity shields an officer’s violation of a prisoner’s free exercise of religion. The lower court dismissed the case simply because it could not find factually identical precedent. The Tenth Circuit should reject such judicial abdication—especially in cases like this one, where the government’s own policy put the officer on notice that his conduct was unconstitutional.
