Cotterman v. United States
Petition for certiorari denied on January 13, 2013
Issue: Whether the Ninth Circuit violated the Constitution,
created circuit splits, contravened this Court’s
decisions, and subverted the appellate process by
replacing the question presented by the parties
with an issue that the prosecution deliberately
abandoned, and by making a factual finding (i.e.
that reasonable suspicion existed) for the first
time on appeal that disregarded the factual
findings of the district court and agents at the
scene, and then by holding that a citizen’s
personal belongings may be seized at the border
with no suspicion of wrongdoing.
