Petition of the day
The petition of the day is:
Signature Pharmacy, Inc. v. Wright
Issue(s): (1) Whether search warrants for a business that shares multi-occupancy buildings with others violate the particularity requirement of the Fourth Amendment where the warrants fail to identify the offices, floors or areas to be searched or the specific items to be seized, despite the officer’s knowledge of the business’s location within the buildings and the limited portion of the business under investigation; and (2) whether the Eleventh Circuit properly ruled that a lead officer with actual knowledge of a business’s operations and location within multi-occupancy buildings is entitled to qualified immunity where the officer prepared and obtained search warrants authorizing the unfettered search of the entire buildings and seizure of all business records and items, including those unconnected to the investigation.
