From Monroe to Connick: Video
In my post of December 6, 2011, I provided an audio link to my November 3 presentation at Loyola Law School (New Orleans), as part of a program entitled “Prosecutorial Immunity: Deconstructing Connick v. Thompson.”
My 40 minute presentation is entitled: “The Long and Winding Road From Monroe to Connick.”
In it, I discuss the leading section 1983 local government liability cases, beginning with Monroe v. Pape in 1961 and culminating with Connick v. Thompson (about which I blogged several times) in 2011. I also address the impact of federalism concerns on local government liability for failure to train.
Below is a video link to this same presentation.
