CASE ENTRY

Gant v. Hartman

Robber flees a Fort Wayne, Ind. store. In the split second he opens the door, he’s shot by a policeman. The officer says he thought the robber was armed. The robber says he was trying to surrender (or at least needed a chance to). The officer: I should have won at summary judgment; don’t make me go to trial. Seventh Circuit: The district court said the facts are disputed, so we can’t hear your appeal yet.
