First District: Warrantless Luggage Searches

The First District characterized the issue in this case as one of first impression: whether an administrative search of checked luggage violates the Fourth Amendment.

The case involved a defendant whose checked baggage contained an accordion folder with a stack of papers, among which were pornographic pictures of children. A federal agent randomly selected the bag, opened it, thumbed through the contents for potentially dangerous materials, and spotted the pictures.

The defendant asserted a Fourth Amendment violation and moved to exclude the evidence. A trial court rejected the argument, holding that the search came within a recognized exception to the warrant requirement — administrative searches in airports. The district court agreed and affirmed.
