Thank you, Elliot, for this well-written article. For all of the complaining about plaintiffs exaggerating injuries to play the lawsuit lottery (some of which is warranted), it can be easy to forget that there are real victims of sovereign and qualified immunity. There is no good reason to give governments and their agents extra protections to avoid accountability--protections that are not available to the rest of society who must face the consequences of their negligence and bad acts.
