D.N.J.: Inevitable discovery applied: (1) officers were drafting affidavit for warrant and (2) there was overwhelming PC

The government proved inevitable discovery applied because (1) they had already started drafting the warrant when the allegedly illegal search occurred and (2) there was overwhelming probable cause for the search. United States v. Restitullo, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 144269 (D.N.J. Oct. 18, 2016).

The officers’ approaching defendant’s car wasn’t a seizure, but he put the car in reverse and attempted to run one over, and that was reasonable suspicion. United States v. Johnson, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 143831 (M.D.Pa. Oct. 18, 2016).*

Defendant’s stop was on the collective knowledge of the first officer who indeed had probable cause and requested that they stop him, traffic offense or not. United States v. Woodson, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 143016 (W.D.Mo. Oct. 7, 2016),* adopted, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 142593 (W.D. Mo. Oct. 14, 2016).*
