CA3: Coast Guard needs only RS to board a vessel to inspect the Oil Record Book about pollution

The Coast Guard had the authority under 14 U.S.C. § 522(a) to conduct a pollution inspection of defendant’s vessel and look at the Oil Record Book. “The Coast Guard’s preliminary examination of the Oil Record Book and Oily Water Separator was within its inspection authority under the Act to Prevent Pollution.” The book was properly admitted into evidence. United States v. Vastardis, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 36034 (3d Cir. Dec. 7, 2021).

There was reasonable suspicion on the totality for defendant’s parole/probation search. The search warrant for premises also was with probable cause. United States v. Devin, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 234702 (D.Minn. Oct. 22, 2021),* adopted, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 233901 (D.Minn. Dec. 7, 2021).*

Male plaintiff’s claim that a jail strip search was video recorded on a cell phone by a female guard stated a Fourth Amendment claim, even in prison. Langron v. Koniecko, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 234758 (D.Conn. Dec. 8, 2021).*
