CA2: Second Tasing of nonresisting detainee was unreasonable

On this record, the second Tasing of plaintiff could be found unreasonable for lack of resistance, which the jury did. Jones v. Treubig, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 19883 (2d Cir. June 26, 2020).

The search under defendant’s consent for “firearms/evidence” was properly limited. On opening a shoe box, officers found a recorder and got a search warrant for it. That was reasonable. State v. Rhodes, 2020-Ohio-3479, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 2418 (2d Dist. June 26, 2020).*

The Iowa court of appeals agreed that plain feel was violated, but inevitable discovery applied. Petitioner does not show that the finding violates clearly established law under 2254. Stephen v. Smith, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 19923 (8th Cir. June 26, 2020).*
