We present methods for background determinations in SUSY searches with signatures involving like-sign di-leptons or tri-leptons. These signatures have very low expected backgrounds in the Standard Model and have the characteristics of a rare search in which one searches for a small signal over a very small background. We present early results from studies of methods for data-driven background determinations in 7 TeV data.
