S.D.N.Y.: Warrantless seizure of a vehicle to pay fines violates 4A and 14A

The warrantless seizure of a vehicle because of owed fines violates the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments. Santander Consumer USA, Inc. v. City of Yonkers, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 164416 (S.D.N.Y. Sep. 12, 2022).

Pretrial detainees also have no reasonable expectation of privacy in jail telephone calls. There is a recording at the beginning telling them calls are recorded. Szpila v. Jerome Combs Det. Ctr., 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 158200 (C.D. Ill. Sep. 1, 2022).

“Because the Court concludes that law enforcement in this case had probable cause to arrest Defendant, the Court need not decide whether aspects of the seizure exceeded the bounds of a Terry stop.” United States v. Figueroa, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 163845 (D.V.I. Sep. 12, 2022).*
