CA9: Public electric utility cutting off one’s power is not a 4A seizure

The public electric utility cutting off one’s power is not a Fourth Amendment seizure. Lull v. County of Sacramento, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 1408 (9th Cir. Jan. 19, 2022).

There was probable cause on the totality, including a showing of nexus to defendant’s property. United States v. Arrington, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 9094 (E.D.Mich. Jan. 18, 2022).*

“In this case, even if Plaintiff’s allegation that defendant Myers (or any other defendant) searched his cell four times over two months leaving it in disarray and damaging his property (hygiene items/soap, pictures) to harass him is true, such conduct, while unprofessional, is insufficient to establish cruel and unusual punishment under the Eighth Amendment.” Montanez v. Salinas, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 9103 (E.D.Mich. Jan. 18, 2022).*
