SHAFER v. CITY OF BOULDER, No. 2:10-cv-02228-MMD-GWF (D. Nevada, September 12, 2012)
Plaintiff’s neighbors were constantly video recording his property to try to prove they were dealing drugs. The police loaned one of the neighbor some government cameras to get video for a police narcotics investigation. When plaintiff learned that some of the cameras were police cameras he sued the policemen who loaned the cameras to one of the neighbors.
Plaintiff actually wins summary judgement against the policemen, primarily because he had a fence up to keep his backyard private and the policemen knew that the neighbor was using the police cameras to video record over that fence.
