W.D.Wash.: The mosaic theory is rejected as to P2P computer searches

A search warrant is not required before using a P2P child pornography acquiring program Roundup eMule. The mosaic theory is rejected as to P2P computer searches. United States v. Blouin, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 129886 (W.D. Wash. Aug. 14, 2017). (The court could have sustained the search in less strident tones.)

A witness on the street already on the phone with 911 provided detailed information that was detailed and essentially corroborated by seeing the defendant. United States v. Timms, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 130592 (S.D. N.Y. Aug. 16, 2017).*
