Hooks v. Atoki, 983 F.3d 1193 (10th Cir. Dec. 29, 2020)

Dec 29, 2020

In this civil rights lawsuit, an inmate alleged that the defendant police officers used excessive force during his arrest, and that correction officers were deliberately indifferent to a jail-house beating he suffered.  The court applied a subjective intent standard to the deliberate indifference claim, holding that no reasonable jury could conclude that the officers acted unreasonably in responding to the attack within 28 seconds.
