Police officers who fatally shot a couple’s dogs during a home search weren’t entitled to kill the animals just because they were unlicensed, a federal appeals court ruled Monday.
In a 2-1 decision, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals at Cincinnati ruled that the couple who owned the dogs could proceed with their Fourth Amendment suit against two of six officers.
The two officers had shot two of the couple’s dogs during their search of the home for marijuana.
One of the two officers had testified he had previously shot 39 dogs. As of July 2016, he had shot at least 69 animals, the lower court opinion said.

Read more about the survey below:
The Rural Law Initiative at Albany Law School’s Government Law Center, in partnership with UAlbany’s Center for Human Services Research, is surveying the 5,258 attorneys registered in 42 rural counties.
This project will provide a data-driven, realistic portrait of the state of rural legal practice in New York. The empirical data that will come from this research will have multiple uses for diverse stakeholders, including governments invested in their rural communities, as well as rural lawyers, legal services organizations, and community-based organizations.
If you are a practitioner in rural New York, please fill out this survey now, and share it with your local bar association and others within your legal network. The more of us who fill it out, the better the data.
Deadline: October 19, 2018. The survey closes in two weeks and this is the final push for submissions. Please make your voice count and help us understand the realities of rural practice.
If you have any questions about this survey please be in touch with Taier Perlman, Staff Attorney at the Rural Law Initiative at (518) 445-3263 or firstname.lastname@example.org
An Apple iPhone X user, suspected of possessing child pornography, was forced by the FBI use facial recognition to unlock their phone.
Forbes reports this is the first known case where law enforcement in any country has compelled someone to unlock their phone using Apple Face ID.
On Aug. 10, the FBI searched the Columbus, Ohio, home of Grant Michalski. Using his face, Michalski unlocked his phone at the FBI’s request, at which point the agent was able to go through chats, photos and any other accessible material.
Facebook has a problem: an infestation of undercover cops. Despite the social platform’s explicit rules that the use of fake profiles by anyone–police included–is a violation of terms of service, the issue proliferates. While the scope is difficult to measure, EFF has identified scores of agencies who maintain policies that explicitly flaunt these rules.
