Alex Beeman presented at the 2020 National Conference on Correctional Health Care on “Kingsley and the Deliberate Indifference Standard in Pretrial Detainee Section 1983 Litigation.”

Hendrickson, where SCOTUS applied the objectively unreasonable standard to an excessive force case involving a pre-trial detainee. Alex discussed how Kingsley is being applied in medical care and treatment cases involving pre-trial detainees under the 14th Amendment.
