Davis v. Clifford (10th Cir. Colo. June 13, 2016) Qualified immunity case evolving from breaking a car window and forcibly removing a driver with an active arrest warrant for driving while suspended from a no insurance case. The lower court grants qualified immunity but the 10th circuit reverses and remands to the lower court for further proceedings. The crux of this case the driver was refusing to cooperate and get out of the car, but was not actively resisting or attempting to flee. It will be interesting to watch this case to see what evolves from the lower court.
