CO: When IP address is the PC for a building, SW permits search of whole building

“This case concerns whether a search for Internet-related evidence that extended to a previously unknown basement apartment was reasonable, even though the apartment was not specified in the warrant. The supreme court holds that 1) the warrant’s reference to the property’s ‘[h]ouse, garage, and any outbuildings’ was sufficiently specific because there were no outward indicators that the basement apartment existed, and 2) execution of the warrant was reasonable in this specific scenario, where the warrant was for all buildings on the property and the defendant told the police that he lived in the basement and used the IP address that provided grounds for the search.” Dhyne v. People, 2024 CO 45 (June 17, 2024).

Defendant’s guilty plea waived his Fourth Amendment and sufficiency of evidence claims. United States v. Allen, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 106606 (N.D. Ohio June 17, 2024).*

A PO ordering plaintiff to attend their office and wait didn’t state a Fourth Amendment claim. Dorgay v. Reif, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 14610 (7th Cir. June 17, 2024).*
