D.N.H.: State liquor agents’ entry into public areas of licensee was reasonable as under administrative authority

NH state liquor agents didn’t violate the Fourth Amendment by entering public space of a regulated establishment to issue verbal warnings. The state supreme court has already held that liquor licensees were highly regulated businesses. E. Coast Serv. Indus. Co. v. N.H. State Liquor Comm’n, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 170490 (D.N.H. Sept. 17, 2020).

The search of defendant’s car was justified by the automobile exception but not the search incident doctrine. United States v. Moore, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 170472 (S.D. Ohio Sept. 17, 2020).*
