NC: Firing gun at officer during alleged illegal traffic stop removed the taint

Even if the defendant was subjected to an illegal stop, his firing his gun at the officer was a new crime that removed the taint. State v. Hester, 2017 N.C. App. LEXIS 558 (July 18, 2017).

Compelled testimony in the UK against defendants violated the self-incrimination clause in the United States. While a Fourth Amendment violation overseas requires U.S. participation and the exclusionary rule has exceptions, the Fifth Amendment is an exclusionary rule. Indictment dismissed. United States v. Allen, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 12942 (2d Cir. July 19, 2017).*
