D.Utah: Rental car driver without rental agreement approval had no standing in CA10

In the Tenth Circuit, merely being the driver of a rented car without a showing of approval from the renter or the rental agreement is a lack of standing in the car. United States v. Flores, 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 1615 (D. Utah January 7, 2015).

Defendant had a motion to suppress heard and denied in 2013. Then the government obtained a new indictment. The motion to suppress is the same as the earlier one, and it’s denied, too. United States v. Murray, 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 2028 (N.D. Ga. January 7, 2015).*

Despite minor inconsistencies between the officer’s testimony and initial reports, the court finds him credible that he stopped defendant’s BMW for not having a valid license plate (a “Sovereign Nation” plate). United States v. Beck, 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 179799 (D. Nev. November 14, 2014).*
