W.D.Okla.: Ping order not subject to exclusionary rule under ECPA

A cell phone ping order allegedly in violation of ECPA was not subject to suppression. The warrantless entry into the house was justified by exigent circumstances. United States v. Banks, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 53876 (W.D.Okla. April 22, 2016).

The officer gets the credibility call here, not because she’s a law enforcement officer, but because of detailed findings of why. There was a preexisting arrest warrant for defendant, and its absence in the reports is not fatal. United States v. Harrell, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 53666 (D.N.J. April 21, 2016).*

The court does not have to decide whether probable cause exists for a DNA warrant [it does] because the search warrant for DNA was clearly within the good faith exception. United States v. Lopez-Castillo, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 54435 (D.Minn. April 22, 2016).*
