D.N.J.: Entry to deal with mental health crisis was with exigent circumstances

Police get a tip that plaintiff was a mental health danger to himself or others, and they entered his house with a mental health professional to examine him. That person found plaintiff in need of involuntary commitment. “All of those facts, taken together, suggest that Defendant Officers lawfully entered Plaintiff’s home by means of exigent circumstances. Despite the liberal construction required of pro se complaints, the facts alleged in the Complaint and the November 2017 Letter are consistent with an exception to the Fourth Amendment and thus fail to state a Fourth Amendment violation.” Keefe v. Settembrino, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 76558 (D. N.J. May 7, 2019).

Defendant resisting extradition back to the U.S. voluntarily gets access to search warrants. In re Extradition of Ameen, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 76408 (C.D. Cal. May 6, 2019).*
