DC: Search of probationer’s GPS monitor didn’t require a SW

Defendant was on GPS electronic monitoring while on probation. The search of his EM device to prove he was involved in a robbery was not unreasonable. Moreover, even if the probation department’s regulations were somehow violated, the exclusionary rule should not be applied. Young v. United States, 2023 D.C. App. LEXIS 325 (Nov. 30, 2023).

The defendant officer had qualified immunity for killing plaintiff’s pitbull that had attacked another dog and children and was coming at the officer. Eady v. Bryant, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 213237 (E.D. Tenn. Nov. 30, 2023).*

Defendant’s cell phone was searched at JFK two separate times based on reasonable suspicion that there was information on it of bank fraud, aggravated identity theft, and money laundering. It was also done in good faith. United States v. Alisigwe, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 213415 (S.D.N.Y. Nov. 30, 2023).*
