Additions to List of 2021 Term Section 1983-Related Supreme Court Decisions

After I posted earlier, I realized that I had inadvertently omitted two per curiam excessive force decisions from the 2021 Term in which the Supreme Court ruled in favor of granting qualified immunity to law enforcement officers. So below is the corrected list, with my apologies.

Supreme Court Decisions in the 2021 Term

  • Kennedy v. Bremerton School Dist: Free Exercise Clause protection for public on-field prayer of high school football coach (see §3:15)
  • Carson v. Makin: Maine prohibition of tuition assistance for parents of school children attending private religious schools in school districts without public high schools violates Free Exercise Clause (see §3:15)
  • New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn. v. Bruen: New York statute requiring anyone seeking a license for concealed carry of handgun to show “proper cause” violates Second Amendment (see §3:16)
  • Vega v. Tekoh: Miranda violations standing alone not actionable under §1983 (see §3:25)
  • Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization: overruling Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey (see §§3:37, 3:52 and 3:78)
  • Thompson v. Clark: §1983 Fourth Amendment malicious prosecution and meaning of favorable termination (see §§3:66, 3:67, 9:30, 9:58 and 9:64)
