United States Ninth Circuit

US v. Cotterman, 09-10139

In a dispute involving the scope of the border search doctrine, judgment by the district court that the search of property seized at an international border and moved 170 miles inland for further search cannot be justified by the border search doctrine is reversed where neither the scope of the intrusion nor the duration of the deprivation was egregious.
