CA7: Def’s detention during protective sweep looking for another was unreasonable

Defendant’s detention in an apartment building during a protective sweep for a fugitive that clearly wasn’t him was unreasonable. The district court’s denial of the motion to suppress is reversed. United States v. Segoviano, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 8771 (7th Cir. Apr. 1, 2022).

Plaintiff’s claim officers coerced him out of his home to arrest him without a warrant fail on qualified immunity grounds. Reviewing the case law, it sure isn’t clear that’s a claim, even surveying all the cases. Gaddis v. Demattei, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 8768 (7th Cir. Apr. 1, 2022).

Defendant’s claim is that information was omitted from the affidavit, but none of it is material to the probable cause finding. United States v. Faulkner, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 61104 (D.Idaho Mar. 30, 2022).*
