C.D.Ill.: Jail telephone provider can’t be sued under the 4A for recording telephone calls

A jail telephone provider can’t be sued under the Fourth Amendment for recording telephone calls. An alleged violation of the Illinois wiretapping statute is not a constitutional violation. Hunt v. Securus Techs., 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 26452 (C.D.Ill. Feb. 15, 2022).

Defendant’s Franks challenge on a wiretap application fails. The affidavits involved were 260 pages long with over half of that showing why regular investigative measures weren’t enough. United States v. Alvarez-Quinonez, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 26293 (W.D.Wash. Feb. 14, 2022).*

Defendant’s initial encounter with the police at the Phoenix airport was consensual. He was told he was free to leave. He consented to search of a bag he was carrying when he handed it to the officer who asked to look at it. United States v. Glenn, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 25955 (S.D.W.Va. Feb. 14, 2022).*
