Davood KHADEMI, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. Sean VANDERWENDE, Police Officer; et al., Defendants-Appellees.
Decided: July 16, 2020
Before: CANBY, FRIEDLAND, and R. NELSON, Circuit Judges.
Davood Khademi, Pro Se
Pretrial detainee Davood Khademi appeals pro se from the district court's judgment dismissing his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action alleging constitutional claims. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291. We review de novo the district court's dismissal under 28 U.S.C. § 1915A. Resnick v. Hayes, 213 F.3d 443, 447 (9th Cir. 2000). We affirm.
The district court properly dismissed Khademi's action because Khademi failed to allege facts sufficient to state a plausible claim. See Davis v. United States, 564 U.S. 229, 232, 131 S.Ct. 2419, 180 L.Ed.2d 285 (2011) (explaining an officer may conduct a warrantless search of an arrestee's person and the area within his immediate control); United States v. Lopez, 482 F.3d 1067, 1072-73 (9th Cir. 2007) (explaining probable cause standard required for warrantless arrest); see also Gordon v. County of Orange, 888 F.3d 1118, 1124-25 (9th Cir. 2018) (elements of Fourteenth Amendment medical care claim by pretrial detainee); Hebbe v. Pliler, 627 F.3d 338, 341-42 (9th Cir. 2010) (although pro se pleadings are construed liberally, plaintiff must present factual allegations sufficient to state a plausible claim for relief).
We do not consider matters not specifically and distinctly raised and argued in the opening brief, or arguments and allegations raised for the first time on appeal. See Padgett v. Wright, 587 F.3d 983, 985 n.2 (9th Cir. 2009).
