    Photog Sues Feds for Heavy-Handed Raid

    In her federal complaint, Sennett says she was not a target of criminal investigation, yet officials searched her home, seized computer hardware and data, digital cameras and memory cards, a still camera, digital storage devices, and a digital voice recorder.
    I hope she wins

    My two cents; this case won’t go anywhere.

    According to the complaint, the authorities did have a search warrant, but the warrant was issued on the basis of false and misleading information purposefully provided by the defendants. Specifically, the affidavit in support of the warrant signed by one of the detectives allegedly failed to state that Sennett was a photojournalist, even though Sennett cites other statements by the defendants that demonstrate that they knew she was a photojournalist engaged in photojournalism at the time they applied for the warrant.

    Sennett was never charged criminally nor arrested in connection with either the protest nor any materials obtained via the search or seizure.

    It is a stretch to believe that these Detectives should have known that this person is a "photo journalist" as no one has ever heard of her.

    That is my point; her contention according to what little information we have on this case is that they should have known and named her as such in her lawsuit.

    I doubt this case will go anywhere but the trash heap and this is more about someone trying to promote themselves than it does anything illegal by this Government.

    The point of the lawsuit is unConstitutional search and seziure.

    That doesn't mean it was legally authorized.
