W.D.Wash.: Carpenter does not apply to private searches

Carpenter does not apply to private searches, citing United States v. Miller, 982 F.3d 412, 431 (6th Cir. 2020), and United States v. Ringland, 966 F.3d 731, 737 (8th Cir. 2020). Kleiser v. Chavez, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 232013 (W.D.Wash. Dec. 3, 2021).

“Benjamin fails to establish that his opportunity for a full and fair litigation of his Fourth Amendment claim was impaired. Rather, Benjamin received consideration of this claim by both the Circuit Court and the Court of Appeals of Virginia, who found it meritless.” Benjamin v. Punturi, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 232117 (E.D.Va. Dec. 3, 2021).*

Plaintiff stated a claim for malicious prosecution because his failure to identify himself without more didn’t justify his prosecution under Virginia law, despite local judge issuing a warrant for him. Stout v. Harris, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 232132 (E.D.Va. Dec. 3, 2021).*
