S.D.Tex.: Arrest was with PC, despite lack of state grand jury indictment

Defendant was charged with child pornography after his computer system password was linked to it. A state grand jury declined to indict him. He sued under § 1983 in state court, and it was removed to federal court. “Without providing any factual detail in the amended complaint, Xie claimed that his arrest lacked probable cause and that an unreasonable search was conducted when he was arrested. In his response to the motion to dismiss, Xie offers nothing more than the speculation that Dunn, Gonzalez, Haydon, and King knew that the prosecution for child pornography lacked probable cause.” Dismissed. Keping Xie v. Univ. of Tex. M.D. Anderson Cancer Ctr., 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 200418 (S.D. Tex. Oct. 7, 2020),* adopted, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 199913 (S.D. Tex. Oct. 27, 2020).*

Plaintiff’s parole officers conducted valid searches. Civil claims dismissed. Corradi v. N.J. State Parole Bd., 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 200642 (D. N.J. Oct. 28, 2020).*
