N.D.Cal.: Rule 41(g) is for return of things, not suppression of evidence

Rule 41(g) is only for return of seized things, and it can’t be used to suppress evidence, especially in a state court. Christie v. United States, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 231113 (N.D.Cal. Dec. 2, 2021).

Defendant’s motion to suppress cites no case law; it just says “probable cause is so lacking.” Well, it’s not. United States v. Miranda, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 230037 (S.D.Ind. Nov. 23, 2021).*

Violation of the Kentucky constitution’s search and seizure provision also requires state action. Stout v. Leadec Corp., 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 230863 (W.D.Ky. Dec. 2, 2021).
