"Graham v. Connor", ussc|490|386|1989 was a case decided by the United States Supreme Court, in which the court determined that an objective reasonableness standard should apply to a free citizen's claim that law enforcement officials used excessive force in the course of making an arrest, investigatory stop, or other "seizure" of his person.

This case also established the doctrine that the judiciary may not use the Due Process Clause instead of an applicable specific constitutional provision:::"Because the Fourth Amendment provides an explicit textual source of constitutional protection against this sort of physically intrusive governmental conduct, that Amendment, not the more generalized notion of 'substantive due process,' must be the guide for analyzing these claims."
