D.D.C.: SW for documents permitted search of any place they could be, not just where def said they were

Officers executing a search warrant for evidence of animal abuse in Washington D.C. used a battering ram on the door without waiting for defendant to come to the door. They had a warrant for veterinary documents on the animals and they were directed to a closet but also searched another closet finding a gun. The apparent abuse of a no-knock warrant had nothing to do with the finding of the gun. Motion to suppress denied. United States v. Ginyard, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 153298 (D.D.C. Aug. 25, 2022).

The delayed search of defendant’s cell phone after it was seized at the border was not unreasonable. United States v. Quarles, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 153348 (M.D. Fla. Aug. 25, 2022).*

The probation search of defendant’s property was based on reasonable suspicion and was reasonable. United States v. Huber, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 153391 (N.D. Ohio Aug. 22, 2022).*
