Where a parolee brought a Fourth Amendment claim of violation of his right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures after officers entered his hotel room without knocking or announcing their presence, the denial of qualified immunity to the officers is reversed and remanded because it was not clearly established law that failing to knock and announce before entering the dwelling of a parolee was unlawful.
Judgment is reversed.
