CA7: State law right of privacy as to another prison inmate isn’t within the 4A

On appeal from 1915A screening, plaintiff does not a show a Fourth Amendment claim to be free from other inmates stealing his stuff. Here it was letters from his girlfriend by his former cellie then the cellie wrote to her to dump him, which she did. A state law right of privacy isn’t within the Fourth Amendment. Mitchell v. Richard, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 35147 (7th Cir. Dec. 14, 2018).

Defendant’s ineffective assistance of counsel is really just a rehash of his suppression motion, and it’s denied. The outcome wouldn’t be different. Bustamante-Conchas v. United States, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210838 (D. N.M. Dec. 14, 2018).*
