11th Circuit

     IMMUNITY – A woman claimed that a deputy falsely arrested her after entering her home without a warrant to search for the subject of a civil-commitment order. The 11th Circuit held that he was entitled to qualified immunity on the false-arrest claim because the law did not give him clear warning that a civil-commitment order does not authorize him to make a warrantless entry or to search an unrelated third party’s home.
