CA3 notes inventory policy not in evidence supporting § 1983 judgment and affirms

In a Fourth Amendment § 1983 case tried to a jury, the claim of an unreasonable inventory search prevailed before the jury. Yet, there was no written policy put into evidence by the parties. Affirmed on this ground. Watley v. Felsman, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 40761 (3d Cir. Dec. 30, 2020).*

There wasn’t probable cause for defendant’s detention at the scene of a murder. Among other reasons, his lack of an appropriate emotional response to death didn’t add anything. State v. Williams, 2020 La. App. LEXIS 1901 (La. App. 5 Cir. Dec. 30, 2020).*
