NY2: Jail call here was more prejudicial than relevant and should have been excluded

Admission of defendant’s jail call here was more prejudicial than relevant because it omitted context. The jury was at a loss as to what arrest was being talked about. People v. Robinson, 2019 NY Slip Op 01799, 2019 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 1724 (2d Dept. Mar. 13, 2019).

An employee of the State Board of Equalization sought to inspect records of the wrong business. An altercation ensued, and he came back with CHP officers with a search warrant for evidence of the altercation [which would be what?]. He participated in the CHP search. He gets no qualified immunity because it is clearly established that his participation was not authorized under the Fourth Amendment. Advanced Bldg. & Fabrication v. Cal. Highway Patrol, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 7364 (9th Cir. Mar. 13, 2019).*
