Doe v. McKesson, 17-30864

Held that a police officer who was seriously injured by a heavy object thrown by an unidentified protester could proceed with a negligence claim against an organizer of the protest. The organizer insisted that the First Amendment barred the lawsuit. Unpersuaded, the Fifth Circuit reversed a dismissal, in this suit brought under Louisiana law involving a Black Lives Matter protest against police misconduct.
