D.Nev.: CI’s alleged (and unsupported) false statement isn’t a Franks violation; has to be the affiant’s

Defendant claims a Franks violation because the CI is believed to be Rudnick, and Rudnick has credibility problems. Defendant doesn’t allege what is false to even get a hearing. Besides, Rudnick is the CI and not the affiant. Denied. United States v. Lopez, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 217281 (D. Nev. Dec. 28, 2018).

Officers had probable cause for search of defendant’s vehicle based on controlled telephone calls between defendant and CI where a drug delivery was discussed. United States v. Thomas, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 217236 (S.D. Ind. Dec. 28, 2018).*
