The Criminal Justice System: George Floyd Bill & Qualified Immunity

Qualified immunity is a legal protection that law enforcement and government officials utilize when they are sued for money or damages in a civil suit. In the panel discussion "The Criminal Justice System: 'George Floyd Bill' & Qualified Immunity," attorneys, scholars, and legal experts debate the use of qualified immunity, and how it has been used to prevent police from being held accountable for misconduct. This panel discussion on qualified immunity was published in "The Bridge: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Legal & Social Policy" from Texas Southern University.
