OR: Property tax reassessment claim dismissed for refusal to permit inspection

Taxpayer’s property tax assessment appeal is dismissed for refusing an inspection of the property claiming a Fourth Amendment violation. He claimed the records of the assessor are incorrect, and the assessor wants to see whether that’s true. He was told he could submit to inspection or suffer dismissal. Salisbury v. Deschutes County Assessor, 2018 Ore. Tax LEXIS 100 (July 31, 2018).*

In a sham marriage case, the Ninth Circuit held the district court improperly extended the sham marriage exception into the marital privilege and remanded. Defendant’s Fourth Amendment claim that he had a reasonable expectation of privacy in conversations with his alleged sham wife when she recorded them for the government is also vacated and remanded to be revisited later. United States v. Fomichev, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 22033 (9th Cir. Aug. 8, 2018).*
