CA9: Mixed motive for admin search doesn’t make it unreasonable

“The presence of an impermissible motive does not, by itself, establish that the administrative search was pretextual, Orozco, 858 F.3d at 1213, and here, the record shows the presence of a valid motive: the city inspector obtained the administrative search warrant, requested police assistance, and ultimately issued a notice and order to abate based on violations of city ordinances discovered during the search.” Icon Desert Logistics v. City of Blythe, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 23088 (9th Cir. Aug. 31, 2023).

“Because the affidavit supporting the warrant provided the Magistrate Judge probable cause to search Mr. Crenshaw’s house, if barely, the Court has no occasion to consider application of the good-faith exception and DENIES Defendant’s motion to suppress (ECF No. 21).” United States v. Crenshaw, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 156000 (N.D. Ohio Sep. 5, 2023).*

Officers drawing weapons during a felony stop was not unreasonable. Green v. Commonwealth, 2023 Va. App. LEXIS 593 (Sep. 5, 2023).*
