Gillum v. Normand (2019 La.) 2019 US Dist. LEXIS 81019

Excessive Use of Force; Monell Liability; Heck Doctrine

This was a summary judgment granted in favor of LE. One of the claims was against the Sheriff in his official capacity (as opposed against him personally). There is a good discussion of Monell liability in this case. In addition, the court held that this case was barred by the Heck doctrine as he pled guilty to resisting arrest.
