S.D.Ind.: T-Mobile’s policy to do a data dump on any T-Mobile phone linked to a robbery of one of its stores doesn’t make it a government agent

A T-Mobile store was robbed, and their policy is to do a data dump including CSLI of any T-Mobile phone number potentially linked to the robbery. That does not make them a government agent in the data dump. United States v. Adkinson, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 54104 (S.D. Ind. April 7, 2017).

Based on the findings of fact at the hearing, “Sergeant Barbaro Hernandez obtained consent from Gisela Lima, the owner of the residence, to enter into the bedroom where he observed in plain view a taser, gloves and radio on a shelf.” United States v. Mustelier, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 52970 (S.D. Feb. 27, 2017),* adopted, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 52969 (S.D. Fla. Apr. 5, 2017).*
