Defendant first litigated his suppression issue in state court and lost. He didn’t appeal, and it became final. That’s collateral estoppel to a civil case over the same search. Freeman v. Indiana, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 13863 (N.D. Ind. Jan. 29, 2019).
After defendant’s Fourth Amendment claim was affirmed on appeal, he couldn’t raise the same ground in federal habeas because of res judicata. Johnson v. Racki, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 13227 (D. Mont. Jan. 22, 2019).*
