John Perry Barlow was arrested at SFO last year on drug possession
charges; he believes that the search that led to his arrest was
illegal.  It's taken him a long time, but he's going to be moving
to suppress that evidence in the hope of getting the charges

That court is at 1050 Mission Road in South San Francisco; see
