CA9: Denial of motion to suppress in state court precludes § 1983 case over same search

Defendant lost his motion to suppress in state court over a warrantless entry into his garage. He later sued over the search under § 1983 in federal court. The federal case was precluded by the state denial of the motion to suppress. Fodrey v. City of Rialto, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 18700 (9th Cir. June 23, 2021).

It was objectively reasonable to stop defendant because of an open container violation. United States v. Helton, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 116497 (D. Kan. June 22, 2021).*

Tasing plaintiff in his own home for resisting arrest during an unlawful entry was entitled to qualified immunity. Gerling v. City of Hermann, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 18665 (8th Cir. June 23, 2021).*
