From Monroe to Connick: Podcast
I spoke on November 3, 2011, at Loyola Law School (New Orleans) at a program entitled “Prosecutorial Immunity: Deconstructing Connick v. Thompson.” The audience included attorneys, law students, professors and members of the public.
My talk, “The Long and Winding Road from Monroe to Connick,” is forty minutes long. 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 are links to the audio version of my talk. I hope you find the talk informative and interesting.
