D.Utah: Use of the drug dog while the ticket is being written is reasonable

Running a drug dog around a car before the ticket is finished being written is reasonable under Cabelles and Rodriguez. United States v. Smith, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 124158 (D.Utah Sept. 12, 2016).

Defendants raised a Fourth Amendment IAC claim. Since defendants would lose on the validity of the search because the entry into the house was clearly justified by exigent circumstances in pursuit of carjackers, the court doesn’t even have to consider ineffective assistance. United States v. Harris, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 122670 (E.D.La. Feb. 23, 2016).*

Another motion to suppress denied in a “Playpen” case under the good faith exception. United States v. Ammons, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 124503 (W.D.Ky. Sept. 14, 2016).*
