CHATTOOGA, GA (Times Free Press) -- A North Georgia detective found to be at fault after she searched a home with an illegal search warrant was told her appeal is a waste of the court's time.

Earlier this year, U.S. District Judge Harold Murphy ruled against Chattooga County Detective Kandy Dodd, deciding that she violated Mark and Connie Gordon's Fourth Amendment rights when she altered a search warrant in 2011.

Murphy also ruled that Chattooga Sheriff John Everett should go before a jury to determine whether he knew his detective deceived a magistrate judge and whether he should have prevented Dodd from executing the invalid warrant.

On June 27, the U.S. Court of Appeals in the 11th Circuit dismissed Dodd's appeal, saying it was frivolous and that Dodd was required to pay all costs and attorney fees for filing the appeal. The appeals court has not yet ruled on Everett's case.
