CA7: State’s use of state’s “John Doe” proceedings was shown to be in good faith

In the court’s second view of Wisconsin’s unique John Doe proceedings, the Seventh Circuit decides only the good faith exception and concludes that the reliance on state law and compliance with the Stored Communications Act was all in good faith. The fact the legal landscape changes after doesn’t deny good faith. John K. Maciver Inst. for Pub. Policy v. Schmitz, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 7074 (7th Cir. Mar. 21, 2018).

There was reasonable suspicion for seizure and search of defendant’s cell phone for violation of his supervised release for viewing child pornography on it. United States v. McGill, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 45885 (N.D. Ill. Mar. 21, 2018).*
