CA11: Excessive force claim against USMS Fugitive Task Force barred by Egbert and Bivens

USMS Fugitive Task Force shot and killed a person they were arresting. Under Egbert, there’s no Bivens claim here. Robinson v. Sauls, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 13432 (11th Cir. June 4, 2024) (another death knell for Bivens).

Defendant abandoned his car by fleeing from it. The government didn’t waive claiming his lack of standing by abandonment. It raised it in a responsive pleading before the ruling on the motion to suppress. United States v. Young, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 96037 (N.D. Ind. May 30, 2024).*

The court credits the testimony of the officers that the license plate placed in the rear window of this car was hardly visible before the stop because of heavily tinted windows. United States v. Payne, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 96086 (D.V.I. May 30, 2024).*

“The officer had probable cause to search Jackson and the vehicle, whether based on the totality of the circumstances or because of the smell of unburnt marijuana alone.” United States v. Jackson, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 13408 (7th Cir. June 4, 2024).*
