Supreme Court Rules on Excessive Force

Posted: Thursday, September 3, 2015

The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard challenges and made a ruling in Kingsley vs. Hendrickson relating to excessive use of force.

Prior to this ruling, the question of whether or not an excessive level of force was used on a pretrial detainee was determined largely by zip codes, since varying Federal Courts of Appeals did not agree on what this standard should be.

In the Kingsley decision, the Court concluded that use of force on pretrial detainees would be judged by what is called the “objectively reasonable” standard.

Jack Ryan, an attorney with the Public Agency Training Council (PATC)’s Legal & Liability Risk Management Institute (LLRMI), wrote an in-depth examination of the decision and its implications.

For more information, read Ryan’s entire article on the LLRMI website. Or go here for a PDF version that you can print or download.
