D.N.M.: Greyhound’s cooperation with the DEA doesn’t give rise to a 4A cause of action against it

Just because Greyhound cooperates with the DEA in Albuquerque doesn’t mean it can be sued there under the Fourth Amendment. Fernandez v. Greyhound Lines, Inc., 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 211564 (D.N.M. Nov. 28, 2023).

Homeless in Los Angeles likely had a reasonable expectation of privacy in their stuff where they were staying, but the city didn’t destroy it–they moved it and told them where to go to retrieve. Therefore, no Fourth Amendment violation. People of City of L.A. Who Are Un-Housed v. Garcetti, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 211358 (C.D. Cal. Nov. 21, 2023).

A typo on the date in the body of affidavit for warrant was off a day, and it wasn’t material. United States v. Hampton, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 211819 (D. Alaska Nov. 29, 2023).*

Defendant was stopped for a traffic offense that wasn’t disputed, and the officer ran his ID coming up with an outstanding warrant for nonpayment of a fine. The search incident to the arrest on the outstanding warrant was valid, and the officer relied in good faith on the warrant despite defendant’s contention that it converted the fine only offense into custody. State v. Grayson, 2023-Ohio-4275, 2023 Ohio App. LEXIS 4127 (1st Dist. Nov. 29, 2023).*
