The basis for a search of the premises is open to conjecture at this point. Obviously there is a lot of blame being placed by both sides. In order for the police to have conducted a search (if it's legal and I'd bet that it is) the judge would have been presented compelling evidence by the attorneys for the plaintiff that would have caused the judge to consider that to disregard a search request would have placed the plaintiff at an enhanced point of risk. Beyond that who knows?
