CASE ENTRY

Zadeh v. Robinson

Fifth Circuit: Texas medical officials’ search of a doctor’s records without first giving the doc a chance to challenge their subpoena violated the Fourth Amendment, but the doc can’t sue because there’s no precedent saying so. (There is now, though.) Judge Willett, concurring dubitante: “I add my voice to a growing, cross-ideological chorus of jurists and scholars urging recalibration” of qualified immunity.
