Tanzin v. Tanvir
- U.S. Supreme Court
Victory! The Supreme Court adopted IJ’s argument in this brief that (1) damages for constitutional violations are important and often necessary, that (2) damages for constitutional violations have a great historic pedigree, and that (3) it is not within this Court’s purview to import policy concerns into its decision-making. This unanimous opinion repudiates the type of policy decision-making the Court engaged in when it created qualified immunity, undermining the entire foundation of this unlawful doctrine.
