Homeowner related shooting case

On the Use of Force Source, I just posted my write-up on a fairly recent Fourth Circuit case involving a homeowner who was shot by police while investigating a disturbance outside his home.  If you’re interested:

George Cooper, Sr. v. James Sheehan, et al.

I also recently posted a write-up on another recent Fourth Circuit opinion involving excessive force and bystander liability (e.g., where a group of officers allegedly beat someone and the victim doesn’t know who did what):

Marquis L. Stevenson v. City of Seat Pleasant, Maryland.
