Hunsberger v. Wood, No. 08-1782

By FindLaw Staff on June 29, 2009 3:49 PM

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action based on a warrantless entry into Plaintiffs' home, the denial of summary judgment based on qualified immunity is reversed where the search was reasonable under the Fourth Amendment exigent circumstances doctrine, because Defendants believed a missing teenage girl was in the house.
