S.D.W.Va.: No 4A right to leaving SW at scene of search

Searching officers do not violate the Fourth Amendment by not leaving a copy of the search warrant, let alone the original. Carter v. Luciano, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 101723 (S.D. W. Va. June 12, 2023).*

The search warrant was based on probable cause, was quite particular, and complied with the Fourth Amendment. “Even if this Court found fault with the search, the exclusionary rule would not be an appropriate remedy because the officers acted in objectively reasonable reliance on a warrant signed by a judicial officer.” United States v. Wehrstein, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 102025 (W.D.N.C. June 9, 2023).*

Plaintiff refused to submit to an unclothed body search at book-in, so he doesn’t have a claim for violation of the Fourth Amendment. Richson-Bey v. Watrous, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 101786 (E.D. Cal. June 12, 2023).*
