CA9: Transcript of interaction at door during knock-and-talk was admissible

“Moore contends that the district court erred in denying his motion to suppress the transcript of a conversation he had with FBI agents, which he alleges was the product of a warrantless search and seizure in violation of the Fourth Amendment. One exception to the warrant requirement is the ‘knock and talk’ exception, which allows an officer to enter an individual’s home to conduct an interview if the entrance is consensual. United States v. Perea-Rey, 680 F.3d 1179, 1187-88 (9th Cir. 2012). Moore consented to agents entering his home to conduct an interview, and so the district court did not err in denying Moore’s motion to suppress the transcript of that conversation.” United States v. Moore, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 30031 (9th Cir. Sept. 21, 2020).
