US v. Young, No. 07-10541

In the government's appeal from the district court's suppression of a firearm obtained from defendant's hotel room as fruit of a warrantless search and seizure, the district court's order is affirmed where the hotel did not actually evict defendant, and thus, he maintained a reasonable expectation of privacy in his hotel room.
