Qualified Immunity in State Constitutional Lawsuits

Iowa Supreme Court majority and dissenting opinions canvass the state of the law.

Many of our readers were interested in Joanna Schwartz's recent posts on rethinking qualified immunity, so I thought I'd note that yesterday the Iowa Supreme Court considered the closely related question of qualified immunity in state constitutional lawsuits (Baldwin v. City of Estherville); there are quite detailed majority and dissenting opinions—check them out if you're interested in the subject.
