CA10: USMS Fugitive Task Force sufficiently different to not fall under Bivens

The USMS is sufficiently different from the defendants in Bivens to justify Bivens not applying where there was an alleged illegal entry of the Fugitive Task Force. Also, there are alternative administrative remedies. Logsdon v. United States Marshal Serv., 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 2491 (10th Cir. Feb. 5, 2024).

The CI related his information about defendant within 72 hours of learning it. The CI had a good track record of reliability. United States v. Tyus, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 19180 (D. Minn. Feb. 5, 2024).*

Officers did not have reasonable suspicion others were present in defendant’s house for a protective sweep on his arrest outside the front door. Still, someone else was inside. United States v. Killingsworth, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 18556 (M.D. Ala. Jan. 5, 2024), adopted, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 17739 (M.D. Ala. Feb. 1, 2024).*
