Judge Jones grants summary judgment on qualified immunity in police chase case

In Roop v. Glenn, Judge Jones granted summary judgment on the section 1983 claims of the plaintiffs against a state police officer who allegedly caused them to drive off the road and down the mountain in the national forest area above Norton. The Court dismissed the supplemental state law claims without prejudice.

On the plaintiffs' Fourth Amendment claim, the Court concluded that there was no seizure. The Court concluded that there was no substantive due process claim.
