CA2: Briefly seeing occupants of a house searched nude was not unreasonable

Under Los Angeles County v. Rettele, plaintiffs’ nude exposure to searching officers during a raid on a home wasn’t unreasonable. Jury verdict for defendants affirmed. Also, this was not a strip search. Miller v. City of N.Y., 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 16080 (2d Cir. July 2, 2024).

Denial of leave to amend based on futility reversed because plaintiff might still state a claim for precompliance review before an administrative search under Patel. Boniecki v. City of Warren, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 16090 (6th Cir. July 1, 2024).*

The United States Supreme Court has held unequivocally that the Fourth Amendment does not allow even a de minimis extension of a traffic stop beyond the investigation of the circumstances giving rise to the stop. Therefore, activities unrelated to the mission of the traffic stop must not extend the time of the stop at all, and such a prolongation of the stop is not permissible even if those activities are done in the middle of the stop. Thus, if an officer clearly diverts from conducting his traffic investigation to carry out a task unrelated to the mission of the stop, the traffic stop is unreasonably prolonged. State v. Caldwell, 2024 Ga. App. LEXIS 301 (July 2, 2024).*
