Plaintiff: Rodrigo Black
Statement of Claim:
On Friday 3/13/2020, Mr. Rodrigo Black’s estate was illegally broken into by the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office. The warrant that was signed by Honorable Judge Shaw signed the warrant under no context of ANY probable cause. Saying this I and my client are calling for the resignation of Blake Shaw under the pretense of him having a direct issue with my client or potential other citizens in the state of San Andreas to further his connections with the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office to perform illegal search and seizures for the department his related brother or cousin is currently leading.
This is a clear cut decision for the following reasons:
There was no valid search warrant for the estate of Mr. Rodrigo Black.
Mr. Black's criminal record is minimal - with nothing constituting a search warrant of his estate. There is no evidence to conclude that he committed or was planning a crime worthy of an invasive search of his home.
The basic principles of conducting a search with a search warrant were not met. Consent was not given or even asked for. There was nothing in Plain View - as the items were inside my client's estate. There were no Exigent Circumstances involving Mr. Black that would justify a search warrant to be requested. This is not a case of Hot Pursuit, and my client's vehicle was not even searched (Automobile Exception), meaning that this entire "operation" was a botched and abrasive illegal attempt to ruin my client's experience in the city.
As per the exclusionary rule, any fines or prison time that were accrued by Mr. Black or his tenants must be compensated for. Illegally obtained weapons or money that were obtained during the raid must be forfeit from use in a court of law.
I am asking for my client the following:
All seized items to be returned. (Legal and Illegal - as the acquisition of these items was performed in a way that does not reflect the integrity of the department)
Understanding that the items seized were potentially listed as illegal in the court of law. We are asking the court for compensation rather than all of the items returned back.
List of seized items to be compensated for
Weed Buds = 1241 (1241 * 350) = $434,350
Packaged Weed = 181 (181 * 350) = $63,350
2 Scratched Pistols = (2 * 2,500) = $5,000
4 Switchblades = (4 * 1,500) = $6,000
Total Amount in dollars for items illegally taken: $508,700
Total Amount of Fiscal Compensation Requested: $50,000
- Breach of Police Misconduct Provision - $25,000
- Compensation for clear violation of the constitution's fourth amendment - $12,500
- Compensation for indirect libel and slander of my client's name and reputation - $12,500
