CASE ENTRY

Okorie v. Crawford

Hattiesburg, Miss. doctor might be overprescribing opioids. So the medical board gets an administrative warrant and allegedly sends nine agents to his office to search through medical records. They allegedly detain him for hours, often at gunpoint. One delivers the charming line “[i]f you don’t sit down I will put you down.” Fifth Circuit: That’s unreasonable for an administrative search. And now that we’ve settled that—qualified immunity!
