E.D.Mich.: Ptf’s guilty plea was collateral estoppel to his § 1983 search claim

Plaintiff’s civil search claim was barred by collateral estoppel by his guilty plea that there was sufficient evidence to convict. The officer gets qualified immunity for relying on a search warrant. Dabish v. McMahon, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 121399 (E.D. Mich. July 22, 2019).*

The district court erred in not granting qualified immunity to an officer whose alleged judicial deception in getting the search warrant wasn’t material to the probable cause. Detention during the search was also entitled to qualified immunity. Advanced Bldg. & Fabrication v. California Highway Patrol, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 21176 (9th Cir. July 17, 2019).*
