Good new qualified immunity case

A while back, I wrote an article about qualified immunity in section 1983 cases, and the law continued on, and my few points of understanding about this area of the law continue have been sometimes reaffirmed in the case law in subsequent cases, including Brosseau v. Haugen, a per curiam opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court issued on December 13, an excessive force case in which the Court overturned the denial of qualified immunity by the Ninth Circuit.
