D.Minn.: USMJ’s order to disclose all CIs is overbroad; not if they aren’t trial witnesses

The USMJ’s order to disclose all information about the informants was overbroad because it included informant’s who are not trial witnesses. It is limited to those who are trial witnesses. United States v. Bias, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 112605 (D. Minn. July 6, 2018).

The court credits the officers’ testimony that the defendant committed a traffic violation for driving left of center. Defendant’s efforts to show vegetation growth made it necessary was inconclusive at best. The officers had reasonable suspicion to continue the stop because of evasive driving when they saw the officer and a tip that the vehicle would be carrying drugs. United States v. Flynn, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 112633 (M.D. Ala. July 6, 2018).*
