Abstract

The issue to be addressed in this Article is whether the right to challenge government authority by means of protesting unreasonable police conduct on public sidewalks, public streets, public parks, or in court litigation is unreasonably restricted by qualified immunity. For example, a person's First Amendment right to protest is violated when a police officer unlawfully arrests that person without any probable cause.
