CA6: Officers who went to hospital room get QI on whether there was a REP in the shared room

Officers who visited plaintiff in his hospital room he shared with another were sued for allegedly violating his reasonable expectation of privacy. There is no clear controlling authority, and the officers get qualified immunity [and the issue goes undecided]. Bonds v. Univ. of Cincinnati Med. Ctr., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 3827 (6th Cir. Feb. 6, 2019).*

The officer had probable cause for the search of defendant’s car, and defendant’s alleged drug dealing gave him probable cause to believe that he had drugs on his person justifying a search incident. United States v. Davis, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 3685 (4th Cir. Feb. 6, 2019).*
