FourthAmendment.com points us to an opinion out of SDNY:

The court conducts a second hearing over whether blanket suppression is required for over searching numerous electronic devices seized from the defendant, some of which were later turned over by defense counsel. Defendant sought to bring his case within “United States v. Debbi, which found a Fourth Amendment violation where the Government blatantly seized large volumes of physical records outside the scope of a search warrant, made no effort to separate evidence of crimes from everything else, and refused to return the bulk of the nonresponsive materials notwithstanding repeated requests by Debbi and the encouragement of this Court. See 244 F. Supp. 2d 235, 237-38 (S.D.N.Y. 2003).[*]” The cases are not comparable, and the motion is denied.
