E.D.Mo.: Covid delay in 48 hour McLaughlin rule not unreasonable

A 12 hour delay past the 48 hour McLaughlin rule for a finding of probable cause was not shown to be unreasonable because of Covid delays and the temporary shutdown of the St. Louis federal courthouse for cleaning. United States v. Bull, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 30714 (E.D.Mo. Jan. 15, 2022).

IRS seizures of property not involving invasion of the home are not protected by the Fourth Amendment. Sorenson v. Bastian, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 30844 (D.Ariz. Feb. 22, 2022).*

Plaintiff was an inmate at Rikers Island, and his suit that his jail calls were intercepted does not state a claim. Even if attorney-client calls were intercepted, there’s no clear right of action for that. “If Plaintiff chose to speak with his attorney on a monitored phone, that he knew was being monitored, his decision to do so acts as a waiver of the attorney-client privilege.” Singleton v. City of New York, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 30760 (S.D.N.Y. Feb. 22, 2022).*
