A panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals appears likely to permit a lawsuit filed by Trump supporters against the city of San Jose for injuries sustained in a June 2016 riot, when anti-Trump activists attacked them.
The city had appealed the earlier decision of a federal district to deny the police supervisors qualified immunity from the suit. The case then went to the Ninth Circuit.
According to the Courthouse News Service:
Harmeet Dhillon, who argued the case on behalf of rally attendees, said the police actively created unnecessary danger by blocking off alternative exits and funneling the crowd into the teeth of a seething mob of anti-Trump protesters.
