CASE ENTRY

Scott v. County of San Bernadino

Seven seventh-grade girls remain mostly silent in the face of San Bernardino County, Calif. officer’s questioning. (Though there is maybe some whispering and giggling.) Which he finds disrespectful, so he handcuffs and arrests the lot of them, both bullies and victims. In his words, this course of action will “prove a point and make you guys mature a lot faster.” Ninth Circuit: No qualified immunity.
