NM: What was intended for SW and what it says are two different things

The search warrant request for plaintiff’s person and vehicle resulted only in a warrant for the vehicle. What the defendant officer intended doesn’t count in the face of the clear warrant. A forced rectal search and x-ray at a hospital was unreasonable and not provided for in the warrant. There are factual disputes against qualified immunity. Plaintiff sued the doctor and the hospital, too. Young v. Gila Reg’l Med. Ctr., 2020 N.M. App. LEXIS 26 (June 4, 2020).

There was probable cause for search of defendant’s vehicle under a search warrant because there was a reasonable conclusion that this was the same car described by witnesses. United States v. Walker, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 98208 (E.D. N.C. June 4, 2020).*
