NJ rejects a RS requirement for all vehicle dog sniffs

New Jersey adopts the Fourth Amendment standard of Rodriguez, and reasonable suspicion is not required for a dog sniff of a car unless the stop is prolonged for the sniff beyond the mission of the stop. State v. Dunbar, 2017 N.J. LEXIS 747 (July 10, 2017).

Defendant’s stop was justified by his walking down the center of the street instead of on the sidewalk. When police approached him, he tried to evade them, and one thing led to another and reasonable suspicion for a frisk was present. United States v. Houston, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 106702 (E.D. Mich. July 11, 2017).*
