790 F.3d 1286 (11th Cir. 2015)

The personal representative of the estate of a suspect who was shot and killed by police brought a § 1983 action against the officer and the county sheriff. The United States District Court denied the officer’s motion for summary judgment and the sheriff’s motion for judgment as a matter of law, and the defendants ultimately appealed those decisions. The Firm successfully upheld the denial of the motion sought by the officer which entitled the personal representative to recover damages under the statute.
