W.D.Ohio: Factual basis for stop overcomes pretext

There was a factual basis for the stop, so the pretext argument fails. United States v. Diaz-Cordova, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 91591 (N.D.Ohio July 14, 2016).

It appears that the U.S. Marshals had objectively reasonable belief that defendant was where they entered to arrest him on a warrant, so the case is remanded to the USMJ to rerun the hearing. United States v. Maclin, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 88683 (W.D.N.Y. July 8, 2016),* rejecting, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 91118 (W.D.N.Y. Jan. 6, 2016).*

At an immigration checkpoint, about 30 or 40 seconds elapsed before the driver consented to a search that led to the discovery of undocumented aliens hidden in the tractor. The search was lawful. United States v. McMillon, 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 13240 (5th Cir. July 20, 2016).*
