CA10: EPA subpoena to determine cost of cleanup was within agency jurisdiction and was reasonable

An EPA subpoena to determine whether this mine could pay for the cost of a cleanup was within the agency’s jurisdiction and valid and did not violate the Fourth Amendment. United States v. United Park City Mines Co., 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 29445 (10th Cir. Sept. 16, 2020).

Defendant was seized by officers following him in a patrol car as he was walking in an area near and away from the scene of the shooting and there was no one else around. He had his hands in his pocket and his pocket looked like he had a gun. That was reasonable suspicion. Commonwealth v. Evelyn, 2020 Mass. LEXIS 519 (Sept. 17, 2020).
