E.D.Mich.: No PC for the warrant, but it wasn’t “so lacking” in PC that the GFE wouldn’t apply

There was no probable cause for issuance of the search warrant, but it wasn’t “so lacking” in probable cause because there was at least something. “The officers, therefore, acted in good faith in executing the warrant because, although the affidavit fell short of the probable-cause standard, it contains ‘a minimally sufficient nexus between the illegal activity and the place to be searched.’” United States v. Mallory, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 60468 (E.D. Mich. Apr. 10, 2018).*

The informant’s information about probationer’s drug dealing was sufficient reasonable suspicion on the totality for a search. Campbell v. State, 2018 Del. LEXIS 155 (Apr. 6, 2018).*
