MA: That CI’s tip in another case wasn’t good enough doesn’t say much about this one where it was more detailed and better corroborated

The CI’s tip here was detailed and substantially corroborated. As to the CI’s track record, a search was suppressed on his information after this one occurred, but that doesn’t ipso facto impugn his credibility. In the other case, the CI’s information wasn’t as detailed as this. Commonwealth v. Gonzalez, 2016 Mass. App. LEXIS 111 (Aug. 29, 2016).

Alleged leak of medical records in a prison is not a Fourth Amendment claim. Palmer v. Cal. Corr. Healthcare Servs., 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 116732 (E.D.Cal. Aug. 30, 2016).

A mere passenger in the car only has standing to challenge the stop under Brendlin. Defendant here claimed no possessory or proprietary interest in the contents of the car and thus lacks standing. State v. Kinch, 2016 Conn. App. LEXIS 342 (Sept. 6, 2016).*
