W.D.Pa.: The borrower of a car has standing

The borrower of a car has standing. “Standing requires a fact-bound inquiry. In this case, Jones was the sole occupant of the car, obtained possession of the car by consent from his cousin, exercised exclusive control over the vehicle for several hours, and there was no evidence that the car was stolen. The court finds that Jones has standing to challenge the search of the vehicle.” There was reasonable suspicion for the stop. United States v. Jones, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 48340 (W.D. Pa. March 31, 2017).
