D.Kan.: USAO in Kansas in contempt for handling litigation over recording attorney-client jail calls

Not a Fourth Amendment case at this point of the litigation, but extremely interesting to everybody in the criminal justice system, including jailers, is United States v. Carter, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 137728 (D. Kan. Aug. 13, 2019), where there were wholesale recording of attorney-client calls with all inmate calls from a CCA lockup at Leavenworth KS recorded by Securus that were shared with the USAO. The FPD has litigated this for three years. Ultimately the USAO was held in contempt. A clear example of the consequences of recording, then sharing attorney-client calls in violation of the Sixth Amendment, and then covering it up.
