CA3: Def’s immigration detention was not an egregious 4A violation

Defendant was involved in an immigration stop where officers were looking for another person allegedly illegally reentering. After finding he was not the person they were looking for, they tried to confirm his identity, and the detention might have been overlong. Even if it was, the detention was not an egregious violation leading to his indictment for illegal reentry. United States v. Mitra-Hernandez, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 1933 (3d Cir. Jan. 24, 2022) (2-1) (dissent argues the stop should have ended when the officers knew he wasn’t the person they were looking for).

Plaintiff was dragged from a city meeting where she was disruptive and ordered out. She didn’t go, so the police dragged her out. She claims injuries from the dragging, but it’s clear there was no excessive force used against her. Summary judgment properly granted. Williamson v. City of Nat’l City, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 1945 (9th Cir. Jan. 24, 2022).*
