A Colorado attorney could advise best here, but your post remains open for four weeks. Your question was probably overlooked in the Products Liability category, which is more about injuries from dangerous or defective products. Your question looks like it's more along the lines of Fourth Amendment issues - you could try reposting under the Criminal Law category. Good luck
