Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Civil Rights — excessive force — qualified immunity
Joseph Caraballo appeals a summary judgment dismissing his personal injury action against Sawyer County, its sheriff’s department and the sheriff (collectively, “the County”). Caraballo argues that because the use of force against him was “plainly excessive,” the court erred by dismissing his suit on the basis of governmental immunity. We reject Caraballo’s arguments and affirm the judgment. This opinion will not be published.
