CA11: Telling ptf to move along wasn’t a 4A seizure

“Here, Watkins did not state a plausible claim that Willson violated his Fourth Amendment rights because Willson did not arrest him, detain him, or restrain his movement. Instead, Willson gave Watkins notice to leave the premises, as required by Florida trespass law, and Watkins left without further incident.” Watkins v. Willson, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 27920 (11th Cir. Sept. 2, 2020).

Plaintiff was aware of his search claims when his hotel room was searched, and that claim is barred by limitations. Another claim that his car was the subject of a tracking warrant wasn’t disclosed to him until much later, and he at least stays in court on that claim for now. Villalona v. Holiday Inn Express & Suites, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 27941 (11th Cir. Sept. 2, 2020).*
