M.D.Pa.: General motion to suppress denied for not pleading any facts or law

“In light of the fact that Defendant fails to specify which statements he is seeking to suppress and the insufficiency of Defendant’s explanation for why the arrest warrant lacks probable cause, I am unable to properly consider these motions. Fourth Amendment jurisprudence is complicated and voluminous, and Defendant’s counsel, by, yet again, not citing to a single case, fails to properly put forward legally supported arguments. The issue of whether suppression of evidence is appropriate, or whether any statements were elicited in violation of applicable constitutional laws is a complex one, and Defendant’s conclusory arguments and incomplete analysis of this complex problem is inadequate.” United States v. Guerrier, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 14405 (M.D. Pa. Feb. 2, 2017).
