D.C.Cir.: Dewey and Mine Safety Act provide for no precompliance warning or review before inspection

The petitioner here was a contractor working at a mine, and a mine safety inspector looked at equipment and cited the contractor a $116 fine. The ALJ denied relief, and, on a petition for review of the fine, the court declines further review. There is no opportunity for precompliance review under the Fourth Amendment and Dewey v. Donovan’s administrative search requirements. Western Oilfields Supply Co. v. Sec’y of Labor & Fed. Mine Safety & Health Review Comm’n, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 289 (D.C. Cir. Jan. 7, 2020).

There is no reasonable expectation of privacy in a prison cell, and plaintiff’s claim is dismissed for failure to state a claim against prison officials not even involved. Tedesco v. Superintendent Graterford SCI, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 304 (3d Cir. Jan. 7, 2020).*
