Even if the judge did sign off on the warrant, any resulting conviction would eventually be tossed out on appeal -

That would be of little comfort to the individual who's life was wrecked in the meantime ..... and was lucky enough to not have been found to have violated some other law along the way, considering that the huge volume of laws out there.
If a search warrant is thrown out, would not then any evidence obtained with said warrant also become inadmissable? Also, if the police were to illegally search your home and "ruin your life" when there was no evidence that a crime was comitted, couldn't you sue afterward to recoup at least some of your losses?
