CA9: On remand for a hearing on inevitable discovery, the district court found it applied three ways

On remand from United States v. Harris, 642 Fed. Appx. 713 (9th Cir. 2016), the district court had a hearing on application of inevitable discovery. “At the supplemental hearing, the district court made three findings in determining that the inevitable discovery doctrine applied, none of which we find to be clearly erroneous. First, the two officers responding to the reported domestic violence incident would have discovered Harris’s parole and searchable probation status by following routine police procedures applicable to such a situation. Second, the officers would then have inevitably developed probable cause that Harris resided at the apartment. Third, the officers would have inevitably searched the apartment after making the two previous determinations.” United States v. Harris, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 20249 (9th Cir. July 20, 2018).*
