OR: Using cell phone while driving is PC for a stop

Pushing buttons on a cell phone while driving was probable cause for a stop. State v. Pham, 295 Ore. App. 322, 2018 Ore. App. LEXIS 1572 (Dec. 14, 2018).*

Defendant questions a representation of the officer in the probable cause calculus. It may be questionable, but it isn’t knowingly or recklessly false. United States v. Cruz-Arroyo, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 211400 (D. P.R. Dec. 16, 2018).*

Defendant’s Franks allegation concerned whether construction worker clothing was in his pickup truck. Even if it’s not true, that doesn’t undermine probable cause. United States v. Mesinas, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210700 (D. Colo. Dec. 14, 2018).*
