U.S. v. McAteer, 2010 WL 551412 (D.N.J.)
After obtaining consent, two FBI agents searched a suspect computer for child pornography. After a "preview scan" failed to turn up any evidence, the suspect gave consent for a manual search. During trial the defendant moved to suppress CP discovered during the manual search on the grounds that it exceeded the consent. The court, however, disagreed and found the defendant's consent not so limited.
