CA9: 4A claim of manufactured PC is a new form of Bivens claim and is barred

Plaintiff’s complaint against DHS that agents fabricated probable cause to have him prosecuted is a new form of claim Bivens will not recognize. Sheikh v. U.S. Dep’t of Homeland Sec., 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 16441 (9th Cir. July 5, 2024).

911 received an anonymous call that a suspicious vehicle was stopped at a particular milemarker on I-75. “Although the 911 caller in this case did not provide a license plate number, Santiago-Marrero is ignoring the detailed information that was provided by the caller; i.e., that the vehicle was small, white, being driven by a male, and had pulled over at mile marker 43 on I-75 south. That is precisely the location where Sgt Touchton found Santiago-Marrero in a small, white Toyota at mile marker 43 on I-75 south.” The officer saw the occupants changing places. This was sufficient under Navarette v. California. Reasonable suspicion to continue the stop developed. United States v. Santiago-Marrero, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 118251 (M.D. Ga. July 3, 2024).*

This defendant had no standing in the search of another person’s iCloud account. United States v. Rombough, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 117986 (N.D. Cal. July 3, 2024).*
