VA: ABC officer validly terminated for not following agency S&S protocol more protective than 4A

Appellant was an ABC officer terminated for not following agency search and seizure protocols which are more protective of constitutional rights than the Fourth Amendment. The court considers the exceptions argued, including the highly regulated business exception, plain view, exigency, and consent, and finds his argument unpersuasive. The state seeks to provide more protection to its citizens and the regulatory officers have to respect it, and the hearing officer’s determination that the exceptions were not shown by him to apply is not contrary to law. Taylor v. Va. Alcoholic Bev. Control Auth., 2019 Va. App. LEXIS 106 (Apr. 30, 2019).
