N.D.Iowa: Six month unjustified delay in getting SW for hard drive made search unreasonable

Six month delay in getting a search warrant for a hard drive in a child pornography case was unreasonable. The government could give a good reason for the delays which might have justified it. Search recommended suppressed. United States v. Fife, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 218951 (N.D. Iowa Dec. 26, 2019).*

Defendant was stopped for going 43 in a 40, and that was a justified stop. The stop was based on the information from another officer under collective knowledge, and there was reasonable suspicion to continue the stop. Pier v. State, 2019 WY 3, 2019 Wyo. LEXIS 4 (Jan. 11, 2019)
