(Quote here by Robert McNamara, Institute for Justice)
We thought this was an illuminating debate on this issue.
Action: Qualified immunity is on the agenda in Thursday’s Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties. Time to push H.R.1470/S.492.
Minimal script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Rep./Sen. [___] to cosponsor and actively support H.R. 1470/S.492 – Ending Qualified Immunity Act, which would remove the protective shield from all state and local government employees who abuse their position of power to harm others.
H.R. 1470 – Cosponsors here: Brownley and Carbajal are not yet cosponsors.
S.492 – Cosponsors here. Senators Feinstein and Padilla are not yet cosponsors.
