Tanzin v. Tanvir

Tanzin v. Tanvir

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.
