D.R.I.: Delay in getting cell phone SW as attributed to parties’ settlement discussions

The delay in getting a search warrant for defendant’s cell phones was caused in part by the parties’ negotiations over pre-indictment resolution, and it was reasonable. United States v. Boudreau, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 48686 (D. R.I. Mar. 24, 2018).*

The egregious violation of the Fourth Amendment standard for suppression in civil deportation cases wasn’t met in this case. There was a factual basis here for further inquiry after the stop because the damage to the steering column of the car strongly suggested it was a stolen car. Sanchez v. Sessions, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 7623 (4th Cir. Mar. 27, 2018).*
