Manning Kass Prevail Again In Ninth Circuit

In a published decision dated October 17, 2023, a panel majority of Ninth Circuit Judges affirmed the Oregon district court's summary judgment for law enforcement officers in an action alleging, in part, that defendants violated Remi Sabbe's Fourth Amendment rights in an incident that ultimately led to his death.  The incident in question took place in Washington County, Oregon. Washington County Law enforcement responded to calls from a neighbor that Mr. Sabbe was driving a pickup truck erratically on a rural field on his own property, that he was drunk, belligerent, and may have fired a gun. An hour after thirty officers arrived at the property, law enforcement used an unmarked armored vehicle to twice execute a pursuit intervention technique ("PIT") maneuver by intentionally colliding with Sabbe's truck in the field. Officers shot Mr. Sabbe after hearing a gunshot and seeing a rifle pointed at them.
