A bankruptcy trustee’s job usually does not include showing up unannounced at a debtor’s door to search for assets. But Catherine Youngman did, and on April 6, a judge said her actions were reasonable and did not violate the Fourth Amendment.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Donald Steckroth so ruled in denying debtor Miriam Bursztyn’s request to suppress a platinum diamond ring, a Marc Chagall lithograph and 169 other items seized in the March 14, 2006, raid.
