D.S.D.: CI tip provided RS for probation home search

The PO’s CI provided information which came to the PO through the police. There was no independent verification of the CI’s tale, but there was enough detail to provide reasonable suspicion for a home search under the conditions of the parole agreement. Events at the scene also added to the reasonable suspicion. United States v. Taylor, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 48623 (D.S.D. March 31, 2017).*

Citizen informant’s information about erratic driving was enough reasonable suspicion for a stop. State v. Ashby, 2017 ND 74, 2017 N.D. LEXIS 63 (March 30, 2017).

Plaintiff’s Fourth Amendment claim against the ASPCA for using a search warrant to seize her animals was dismissed. She doesn’t even attempt to overcome the presumption of validity of a search warrant. Grant v. ASPCA, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 50437 (S.D. N.Y. March 31, 2017).*
