Searches for Guns at the Home of a Suspect’s Family Member

This is the case I blogged about last year; an 11-judge Ninth Circuit en banc panel has just held (Millender v. County of Los Angeles) that the search was so clearly unconstitutional — “Because the challenged sections of the warrant were ‘so lacking in indicia of probable cause as to render official belief in its existence unreasonable'” — that the police officers were not shielded from liability by qualified immunity. For more details, please see this post or the opinion.
