N.D.N.Y.: Lack of consent no defense to a probation search

Lack of consent is no defense to a probation search. United States v. Lombardo, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 173618 (N.D.N.Y. Sep. 20, 2022).*

Defendant was detained after furtive gestures. He ultimately voluntarily spoke to the officers. There was no constitutional violation for the exclusionary rule to apply to. United States v. Devaisher, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 173414 (S.D. Ill. Sep. 23, 2022).*

Plaintiff failed to demonstrate that under the facts here, the officers’ incremental and combined use of a baton, a canine, and a taser violated clearly established law of which a reasonable officer would have known. The undisputed facts of the case showed that plaintiff threatened the officers and actively resisted their efforts to subdue and secure him. That’s at least qualified immunity. McKinney v. City of Middletown, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 26863 (2d Cir. Sep. 26, 2022).*
