No Qualified Immunity For Officer Who Disclosed Video to Media

Anderson v. Blake, --- F.3d ----, 2006 WL 3291688 (10th Cir. Nov. 14, 2006)

Police officer lost his qualified immunity in civil claim against him that he improperly disclosed video to media of P’s alleged rape. P’s constitutionally protected privacy interest in the tape was clearly established, and the fact that the tape also included evidence of a crime did not deprive P of her privacy interest.
