E.D.Mich.: Def was alleged to be involved in a pill mill, but SW was for his home; affidavit showed nexus to home for instrumentalities of crime

Police got a search warrant for defendant’s home in a pill mill case. “This affidavit did not attempt to establish probable cause to believe Knight was conducting prescription drug deals at his home. Instead, it attempted to establish probable cause to believe that tools used in the prescription fraud ring, like cellphones, firearms, and scheduling records, would be found in Knight’s home.” Thus, the search warrant still had nexus to the offense. United States v. Knight, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 189119 (E.D. Mich. Nov. 15, 2017).

In this § 1983 case after a criminal case, plaintiff had a suppression hearing and lost and then pled. That collaterally estopped his invasion of privacy claim. His excessive force claim at the time of the arrest, however, survives. Rogers v. Morgan, 2017 Del. Super. LEXIS 586 (Nov. 9, 2017).
