TX5: No binding authority says there’s a REP in an inmate’s jail medical records

There is no binding authority that a jail inmate has a reasonable expectation of privacy in his jail medical records, so the court finds the exclusionary rule shouldn’t apply. Quaschnick v. State, 2024 Tex. App. LEXIS 1108 (Tex. App. – Dallas Feb. 12, 2024). [Qualified immunity merging with the good faith exception.]

Plaintiff stated a claim for a Fourth Amendment violation for a strip search captured on a body cam. Turner v. Castillo, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 25926 (E.D. Cal. Feb. 13, 2024).

Plaintiff overcame qualified immunity on the question of apparent authority to consent to a search where the facts clearly did not support a claim of apparent authority. Gordon v. District of Columbia, 2024 D.C. App. LEXIS 54 (Feb. 15, 2024).*

Body cam video does not clearly support the officer’s claim that he was justified in his arrest, so summary judgment cannot be granted. Amos v. City of Chi., 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 26319 (N.D. Ill. Feb. 15, 2024).*
