Zion v. County of Orange, 15-56705

In a civil rights action, alleging that a police officer used excessive force when he shot the deceased Connor Zion nine times at close range while he was lying on the ground then stomped on his head three times, the district court's grant of qualified immunity to defendants is reversed where a reasonable jury could conclude that the shots and head stomping were excessive force and acts serving no legitimate law enforcement purpose.
