By FindLaw Staff on August 31, 2009 4:06 PM

In an action claiming that defendant-officer violated plaintiff's son's Fourth Amendment rights when he entered her home without first knocking and announcing the SWAT team's presence, a denial of summary judgment based on qualified immunity is reversed where a reasonable officer could have had reasonable suspicion that knocking and announcing his presence would have been dangerous under the circumstances facing the SWAT team.
