Qualified Immunity

Resolved: The Supreme Court Should Overrule Qualified Immunity

A debate today with Professor Chris Walker


I am writing this post from New Orleans, home this year's Association of American Law Schools Annual Meeting. As part of that meeting, the Federalist Society is sponsoring a debate on a topic I've written about repeatedly on this page—Resolved: The Supreme Court Should Overrule Qualified Immunity.

I'll be taking the affirmative side of the debate, and Professor Chris Walker will defend it. Professor Tara Grove will moderate. For those at the conference, it will be at noon today in the River room of the Riverside Complex. For those at home, you can watch the debate livestreamed below at noon CST.
