Leaf, Larry J. v. Shelnutt, Ronald (SD Ind.,Larry J. McKinney, Chief Judge) [41 pp.]
Before EASTERBROOK, RIPPLE and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.
RIPPLE, Circuit Judge. Early in the morning of May 5, 2001, Marion County Sheriff’s Deputy Ronald Shelnutt shot and killed John Patrick Leaf. Members of Mr. Leaf’s family (“the Leafs”) brought this action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and Indiana state law for alleged constitutional violations and other torts arising from this tragic event. The district court granted in part and denied in part Deputy Shelnutt’s motion for summary judgment. For the reasons set forth in the following opinion, we now reverse the district court and remand for further proceedings.
