Defendants have filed a Notice of Interlocutory Appeal (Doc. 72) on the Court's denial of qualified immunity. A Defendant is
entitled to file an interlocutory appeal of a district court's denial of qualified immunity pursuant to the collateral order doctrine. Ottman v. City of Independence, Mo., 341 F.3d 751, 75556 (8th Cir. 2003). A denial of a state official's assertion of qualified immunity is immediately appealable. Irving v. Dormire, 519 F.3d 441, 445 (8th Cir. 2008).
Based on the foregoing, the Court orders a STAY of the proceedings, including the trial scheduled to begin Monday, October 27, pending the Eighth Circuit's ruling. IT IS SO ORDERED this 22nd day of October, 2008. /s/ Robert T. Dawson Honorable Robert T. Dawson United States District Judge
