CASE ENTRY

Judd v. City of Baxter, Tennessee

Allegation: While eating dinner, a frail septuagenarian gentleman learns that his girlfriend’s store is ablaze. He rushes to the scene, sees firefighters struggling to open locked door, and approaches a Baxter, Tenn. police officer to give her the keys. The officer throws him to the ground, and a nearby paramedic beats him for good measure. Wait … what? Sixth Circuit: The paramedic is not entitled to qualified immunity.
