Notable opinion in detainee death case

Notwithstanding the tragic facts, Judge Conrad's opinion in Harvey v. Roanoke Sheriff's Office is worth reading, for the wide range of issues addressed.

I wondered about a few that were not addressed, like the Eleventh Amendment, and how it is that the "sheriff's office" is an entity that can be sued - perhaps those were taken up in the earlier opinions.
