CA4: Inventory policy’s failure to mention dealing with closed containers doesn’t make it unreasonable

The inventory policy sufficiently curtailed the officer’s discretion to be constitutional. It did not mention closed containers but that doesn’t make it unconstitutional. The officer’s search of a laptop case was reasonable even though the officer didn’t log everything that was in it. United States v. White, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 18107 (4th Cir. Sept. 19, 2017).

Plaintiff’s complaint alleges enough to state a claim for a civil rights conspiracy against these defendants to violate the Fourth Amendment. Widi v. McNeil, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 151521 (D. Me. Sept. 19, 2017).*
