E.D.N.Y.: There was RS for def’s border cell phone search for drug importation

While the law isn’t completely clear on the justification for a cell phone search at the border, the justification for either standard is satisfied. There was clearly reasonable suspicion of drug importing at JFK for search of his cell phone. United States v. Tineo, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 101200 (E.D.N.Y. June 6, 2024).

A police officer’s affidavit that defendant fired a gun at his car on the Long Island Expressway showed probable cause for a search warrant of the car. People v. Morillo, 2024 N.Y. Misc. LEXIS 2378 (Queens Co. May 20, 2024).*

Plaintiff inmate’s complaint that prison officials violated his Fourth Amendment by misdelivering non-legal mail didn’t state a claim. Bell v. State Prison Offs., 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 13817 (5th Cir. June 6, 2024).*
