Video description:

This is the oral argument from a case recently decided where police officers lose qualified immunity over an arrest because they had no legal probable cause for an arrest and only charged the defendant for failure to identify in the state of Texas. The basic summary is the probable cause for the case focuses on the issue of arresting for blocking a walkway or traffic area where legal standards have been laid out since the 1980's through case law. The police ignored that legal standard and arrested the person protesting an abortion clinic but later charged him with failure to identify as the only charge. A civil suit was brought on by the defendant and at the first rounds in the courts, the police lost the issue of qualified immunity. The city is now trying to appeal that loss of qualified immunity.
