A DEA agent removed a suitcase from the common luggage area of an Amtrak train and pulled it down the aisle of the rail car seeking the owner. The suitcase did not have a tag on it as required by Amtrak rules. The court ruled removing the suitcase from the luggage area was a seizure in violation of the 4th amendment. See United States v. Hill, 805 F.3d 935 (10th Cir. N.M. 2015).
