Highlight

Absent a showing of authority, threat, or demand, an officer calling out and running up ahead of person to get their attention does not constitute a seizure implicating the Fourth Amendment.
Under N.D.C.C. § 39-08-01, whether a driveway is a private area to which the public has a right to access is a question of fact. A fact-finder could reasonably conclude the driveway at issue, although private, was an area "to which the public has a right of access for vehicular use."
