KS: College dorm lobby not curtilage

Defendant was arrested in the lobby of his college dorm at WSU. His room was on the fourth floor. The lobby was not part of his curtilage because hundreds come through there, residents and non-residents alike. State v. Bannon, 2018 Kan. App. LEXIS 4 (Jan. 12, 2018).

Four circuits have held that 404(b) evidence is subject to the exclusionary rule, but the Eighth Circuit hasn’t weighed in. The government withdraws this evidence, so the motion is moot. United States v. Walker, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 5894 (D. Minn. Jan. 12, 2018).
