CASE ENTRY

Hill v. Walsh

Man overdoses; his sister petitions to have him civilly committed. A judge issues a warrant to apprehend him that says, in bold print, he’s in hospital. Yikes! Taunton, Mass. police instead go to his parents’ house, damage it. A Fourth Amendment violation? Officers had an objectively reasonable basis to search the home, says the First Circuit.
