7th Circuit Precedent Created

In Wheeler v. Lawson, Matthew Clark as lead counsel and primary author with Elizabeth Knight successfully argued and affirmed the grant of summary judgment. The 7th Circuit that the detective defendant was entitled to qualified immunity in that his decision to arrest the Plaintiff was reasonable based on the explosion of a methamphetamine lab that burned down her garage which had cameras on it. The Wheeler decision has been cited almost 400 times and is one of the leading decisions for the qualified immunity defense in the 7th Circuit.
