The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit joined at least six other federal appeals courts Monday in its ruling on a qualified immunity question, notching a win for Arnold & Porter.

The panel held that Lakewood, Colorado, police officer Ahmed Yehia, who was sued after shining a light in the camera of a journalist who was recording a DUI traffic stop and then driving his cruiser at him, isn’t protected from a lawsuit Abade Irizarry filed over the incident.
