E.D.Wis.: Video of aftermath of execution of SW more prejudicial than relevant under Rule 403

In a civil case over a shooting of dogs during execution of a search warrant, the court rejects that the warrant was unreasonable but finds the bodycam of shooting the dogs and the aftermath irrelevant and inflammatory under Rule 403. Dragonwood Conservancy, Inc. v. Felician, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 51264 (E.D. Wis. Mar. 17, 2021).

The officers’ use of “reverse reap throw” to bring down a naked mentally disturbed man on the street resisting detention was not a violation of clearly established law. O’Doan v. Sanford, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 8077 (9th Cir. Mar. 19, 2021).*

This student came to school smelling of marijuana and he was searched but nothing was found. He was suspended and appealed, but moved to another school district. His search and suspension claims are moot because he’s no long a student there. Stanford v. Northmont City Sch., 2021-Ohio-872, 2021 Ohio App. LEXIS 865 (2d Dist. Mar. 19, 2021).*
