  MLC - Mayo Law Clinic: Warrants
A bench warrant is a formal order of the court to law enforcement officers to arrest and bring to jail a person who has failed to appear in court at a determined time and place.
The warrant is issued upon a sworn declaration by the district attorney, a police officer or an alleged victim that the accused person committed a crime.
Alternatively, in the case of many Bench Warrants, if a person retains an attorney before he or she is picked up or arrested, the defense attorney can usually prevail upon the court to recall the bench warrant and permit the attorney to make an appearance for the defendant.

 Enjoy The Drive -- Attachment A
The essence of the law concerning aftermarket auto parts is that a vehicle manufacturer may not condition a written or implied warranty on the consumers using parts or services which are identified by brand, trade, or corporate name (such as the vehicle maker's brand) unless the parts or service are provided free of charge.
The law means that the use of an aftermarket part alone is not cause for denying the warranty.
However, the law's protection does not extend to aftermarket parts in situations where such parts actually caused the damage being claimed under the warranty.

 ASIL Insights: ICJ Ruling on Belgian Warrant
Thus, the case before the Court was about whether ministerial immunity affected the lawfulness of the Belgian arrest warrant, and did not deal with the question whether the disputed warrant, issued in an exercise of purported universal jurisdiction, complied with the rules and principles of international law governing the jurisdiction of national courts.
Given that the DRC had dropped its challenge to the legality of the arrest warrant based on Belgium's claim to exercise universal jurisdiction, the Court assumed solely for the purpose of this case that Belgium had jurisdiction under international law to issue and circulate the warrant.
Whereas Belgium claimed that no immunity attaches under international law for serious crimes under international law or for acts done in a private capacity or other than in the performance of official functions, the DRC argued that a sitting foreign minister's immunity is subject to no exception.

The execution of the City’s search warrant could substantially chill the exercise of fundamental state constitutional rights, primarily because at least one of the reasons why the City seeks the suspect’s customer purchase record is related to the contents of the books that he may have purchased.
Our basic rationale for this holding is that, before law enforcement officials are permitted to take actions that are likely to chill people’s willingness to read a full panoply of books and be exposed to diverse ideas, law enforcement officials must make a heightened showing of their need for the innocent bookstore’s customer purchase records.
The search warrant sought information related to the one transaction for which the police had an invoice number as well as the thirty-day purchasing history of Suspect A. After the adversarial hearing, the trial court held that the thirty-day purchasing history request was too broad and therefore unconstitutional.

 FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin,The: Consent once removed - Legal Digest - search warrant law
It is constitutional for a police officer to arrest a suspect in a public place without a warrant if the officer has probable cause to believe the arrestee has committed a crime, regardless of whether that crime is a felony or a misdemeanor.
The common law rule, however, followed in many state and federal statutes, limits the authority of an officer to make a misdemeanor arrest without a warrant to circumstances when the suspect commits the misdemeanor in the officer's presence.
In circumstances when officers do not have a warrant and are not faced with an emergency, they still will be able to conduct a search if they obtain voluntary consent to search from someone who has actual or apparent dominion and control over the premises.
