TN: Fleeing, crashing, and abandoning car, taking another, and fleeing to another state is abandonment of the first car

“By leaving his crashed vehicle in a position that was blocking the roadway and fleeing in another vehicle [to another state], the defendant manifested through his own actions an intent to abandon the truck and its contents. As a result, the defendant maintained no reasonable expectation of privacy in the vehicle or the materials contained therein.” State v. Logan, 2015 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 601 (July 27, 2015).

“Taking the evidence in the record in the light most favorable to Ramirez, we conclude that a reasonable jury could find that Burgess used excessive force as Ramirez contends.” Ramirez v. Judd, 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 13025 (11th Cir. July 28, 2015) (three sentence affirmance; four if you include “AFFIRMED.”).*

There was reasonable suspicion for a parole search of defendant’s car, so defense counsel couldn’t be ineffective for not challenging it. State v. Gavin, 2015-Ohio-2996, 2015 Ohio App. LEXIS 2903 (4th Dist. July 13, 2015).*
