W.D.Ky.: Allowing theft from house after a search had a state remedy, so no § 1983 remedy

Plaintiff alleged the Sheriff’s Office, after a search, gave the keys to his place to a convicted felon who stole from him. He has a state remedy, not a § 1983 remedy. Stone v. Taylor Cty. Sheriff Dep’t, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 13421 (W.D. Ky. Jan. 25, 2023).

Driving one’s vehicle from home to controlled buys establishes nexus to the home. United States v. Ward, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 2059 (6th Cir. Jan. 24, 2023).*

In some crimes, the officer’s experience that evidence will be at the home is enough to establish probable cause, and this is one. United States v. Bennett, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 13185 (N.D. Ga. Jan. 26, 2023).*

The traffic stop was objectively justified by the dashcam. The claim of pretext was not preserved for appeal. State v. Allen, 2023-Ohio-192, 2023 Ohio App. LEXIS 188 (4th Dist. Jan. 12, 2023).*
