CA10: Tasing a fleeing suspect is the seizure

Defendant continued to flee when he was finally Tasered. Then he was seized. United States v. Jeffers, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 3131 (10th Cir. Feb. 3, 2022).

Plaintiff complains that inmate porters came into his prison cell and went through his stuff and took some. [That’s not state action for a search claim.] He has no reasonable expectation of privacy in his prison cell. Logan v. Mich. Dep’t of Corr., 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 19882 (W.D.Mich. Feb. 3, 2022).*

Apparently invalid paper tag justified defendant’s stop. This was not a stop at random. United States v. Green, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 252464 (S.D.Ga. Dec. 21, 2021),* adopted, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 18968 (S.D.Ga. Feb. 2, 2022).*
