CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether defendant did not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in his hospital room?    

Defendant sought to suppress evidence found in his hospital room.  There was a shooting earlier.  Defendant was in his hospital room.  An officer entered his hospital room and seized his bloody clothing from the floor.  The evidence was sufficient to show that the firearm had been in or affected interstate commerce.  The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held that defendant did not have an objectively reasonable expectation of privacy in his hospital room, and therefore, defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights were not violated.

United States v. Marcus Mattox, 20-3065, Gruender, J.  Appealed from the United States District Court, District of Minnesota.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
