Qualified immunity protects police officers and other government officials who steal from, beat, and even kill innocent people, so long as no other official has been sued for committing exactly the same abuses under exactly the same circumstances. The Institute for Justice is a leader in the fight to overturn qualified immunity and restore accountability to government through lawsuits, friend-of-the-court briefs, and public outreach—including one case already headed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
