After Cincinnati police officers used force to handcuff Nathaniel Jones and hold him prone on the ground, Jones stopped breathing. Nevertheless, the officers waited for additional emergency personnel to arrive before changing his position or providing any first aid or medical assistance to Jones, and Jones died. Jones's estate brough a section 1983 suit against the officers, and the officers moved to dismiss on the basis of qualified immunity. The Sixth Circuit denied the motion. The questions presented are:
Brian Wolfman and Leah Nicholls of Public Citizen assisted the respondent at the cert stage, and the Supreme Court denied cert.
