N.D.Ill.: Exclusionary rule doesn’t apply in civil case

The FTC moved for a preliminary injunction and appointment of a receiver which was granted on an emergency basis. Defendants now claim a Fourth Amendment violation from seizure of records. The claim is waived by not raising it sooner. Even if not, (1) the exclusionary rule doesn’t apply in civil cases, and (2) the FTC showed probable cause. FTC v. Credit Bureau Ctr., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 6188 (N.D. Ill. Jan. 14, 2018) (see Treatise § 9.20 n.15).
