Sanchez v. Canales, No. 06-55584

By FindLaw Staff on July 30, 2009 1:26 PM

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action claiming that plaintiffs were unlawfully detained during defendant-officers' search of their home, district court's partial denial of qualified immunity to defendants is reversed where, given that officers may search the home of a parolee or probationer without a warrant so long as the officers have probable cause to believe they are at the address where the parolee resides, there is no need to be concerned that a neutral magistrate had not approved the reasonableness of the compliance search.
