C.D.Ill.: Long term borrower of car has standing

One who borrows a car for a long time has standing. “And the Court is persuaded that society is prepared to accept as reasonable a person’s subjective expectation of privacy in a car borrowed for months on end from a friend. Without such an expectation, the very notion of ‘borrowing’ would make little sense.” “Additionally, Coleman also likely has standing to challenge the search of the car because it was a consequence of the seizure of his person.” United States v. Coleman, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 59110 (C.D. Ill. April 18, 2017).

Defendant claimed his counsel was ineffective for not telling him that a guilty plea waived his search and seizure claims. He can’t show prejudice because the search wasn’t invalid anyway. United States v. Hardee, 2017 CCA LEXIS 263 (A.F. Ct. Crim. App. April 17, 2017).*
