D.Ariz.: VA drug tests for medical purposes were valid under the 4A special needs exception

Plaintiff challenged UA drug tests administered by the VA because the doctors there were trying to wean him off opiates. Those tests were reasonable under the special needs exception and for medical purposes. Gorney v. Veterans Administration, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 168122 (D.Ariz. Sept. 15, 2020).

PCR claim reversed for a hearing because the limited record available doesn’t refute defendant’s Rodriguez detention claim on the merits. Anderson v. State, 2020 Fla. App. LEXIS 12847 (Fla. 1st DCA Sept. 14, 2020).*

Defendant’s repackaged Fourth Amendment claim was essentially the same as already presented. And this is just a successor petition. In re Stephens, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 29154 (11th Cir. Sept. 14, 2020).*
