S.D.N.Y.: A reasonably conducted eviction is not a 4A violation

“Most eviction-type seizures do not violate the Fourth Amendment. Thomas v. Cohen, 304 F.3d 563, 574 (6th Cir. 2002) (citing Soldal v. Cook County, 506 U.S. 56, 71, 113 S. Ct. 538, 121 L. Ed. 2d 450 (1992)). Seizing an individual’s belongings during an eviction can rise to a Fourth Amendment violation only when that seizure is unreasonable.” Tasfay v. Ramos, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 27391 (S.D.N.Y. Feb. 14, 2022).

The officer here had probable cause to take the unlighted joint off defendant because he suspected it contained marijuana. United States v. Mardigras, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 27244 (S.D.Fla. Jan. 12, 2022).*

A conclusory motion to suppress can be denied without a hearing. People v. Highsmith, 2022 NY Slip Op 01038, 2022 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 1018 (2d Dept. Feb. 16, 2022).*
