D.C.Cir.: Defense counsel not ineffective for not raising search issue where law was uncertain at best in jurisdiction

Counsel was not ineffective for failing to challenge evidence obtained from an electronic surveillance device (truck bug) unlawfully installed in a vehicle outside of the authorizing court’s geographic jurisdiction. In light of the deeply unsettled law on the question of standing to suppress pursuant to 18 U.S.C.S. § 2518(10)(a)(i), counsel did not perform below the constitutional standard. United States v. Glover, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 19741 (D.C. Cir. Oct. 10, 2017).
