Court papers fly in Sanders auto wreck

Thursday, November 10, 2011, 4:41 pm News Flash Archive

The Greenwood Commonwealth reported that last Tuesday, the 8th of November, local attorney and former city judge Neysha Sanders was in an automobile accident that flipped her SUV and resulted in her being transported to Jackson for her injuries.

Just hours later, her father Alix Sanders filed a lawsuit on her behalf against the Greenwood Police Department and the Mississippi State Crime Lab to stop them from analyzing the medication which police obtained from her purse during the accident investigation.

The lawsuit alleges that the items were taken without a search warrant and without the consent of Neysha Sanders, and that therefore the search violated her constitutional rights to privacy and to be free from unlawful search.

The Sanders are represented by Greenwood attorney Fred Clark.

The lawsuit asks the court to stop the police from taking the materials to the crime lab for analysis.

The motion for injunction to stop the police and the lab from analyzing the medications can be seen here: Motion for Injunction

Chancellor W. M. Sanders immediately granted the order: Court Order Granting Injunction

A court hearing is scheduled for November 16th to follow up on this preliminary order.
