D.Neb.: No REP in psych hospital’s bathroom stalls

There is no reasonable expectation of privacy in a psych hospital’s bathroom stalls where plaintiff was involuntarily committed. Narcisse v. Kubes, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 16111 (D. Neb. Feb. 1, 2019).

There was reasonable suspicion to stop and detain defendant because of the officers’ personal knowledge of his prior drug and weapons offenses and his apparent hand-to-hand transaction. That led to a search warrant. A misstatement as to the name of the motel where this occurred in the affidavit was only negligence or innocent mistake that does not void the warrant. State v. Hogan, 2019 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 67 (Feb. 1, 2019).*
