CASE ENTRY

Michalski v. Sonstrom

Allegation: Michigan officers drag unresisting suspect from vehicle, beat him up. Sixth Circuit: The video doesn’t show events too clearly, but what is recorded (for instance, a voice saying, “Take that baby!” when the suspect is tased) is enough to overcome qualified immunity. To a jury this must go.
