Ind. Decisions - SCOTUS rules in 7th Circuit case today, out of Wisconsin

The SCOTUS decision in Kingsley v. Hendrickson today adopts Judge Hamilton’s dissent, 744 F.3d 443, 455, in this morning’s 5-4 ruling. From the SCOTUSblog case page:

Whether the requirements of a 42 U.S.C. § 1983 excessive force claim brought by a plaintiff who was a pretrial detainee at the time of the incident are satisfied by a showing that the state actor deliberately used force against the pretrial detainee and the use of force was objectively unreasonable.
