Bowling v. Rector, No. 07-6284

By FindLaw Staff on October 26, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action alleging an unlawful search, denial of summary judgment for defendant based on qualified immunity is affirmed in part where defendant's alleged conduct in exceeding the scope of the search warrant violated plaintiff's clearly established right under the Fourth Amendment.  However, the order is reversed in part where: 1) defendant's alleged violation of Oklahoma law was not, without more, significantly relevant to the Fourth Amendment analysis; and 2) a search warrant was constitutionally valid.
