SD: Electronic signature on a SW application sent in to magistrate is valid as an oath

An electronic signature on a search warrant application is still an oath for an affidavit required under state law, and the motion to suppress was properly denied. State v. Bowers, 2018 SD 50 (June 27, 2018).

Juvenile defendant was interrogated in his own home with his mother present and he wasn’t in custody for Miranda. State v. Castillo, 2018 Conn. LEXIS 233 (July 3, 2018).

Plaintiff sued for false arrest after he was arrested for driving an ATV in a city allegedly in violation of a city ordinance. It was later determined there was no violation of any ordinance and the case was dismissed, so he sued under state law. “A defendant who pleads and proves as an affirmative defense that he or she exercised all due care to conform with the requirements of the law is entitled to qualified immunity on an individual’s claim for damages for violation of article I, sections 1 and 8 of the Iowa Constitution.” Baldwin v. City of Estherville, 2018 Iowa Sup. LEXIS 78 (June 29, 2018).*
