GA: 536 day delay in getting SW for cell phone was unreasonable

Defendant’s cell phone was lawfully seized but apparently forgotten about. In preparation of the case, an assistant prosecutor found out about it and sought a search warrant, 536 days after seizure. The delay was unreasonable, and the phone’s contents are suppressed. State v. Rosenbaum, 2019 Ga. LEXIS 155 (Mar. 11, 2019).

Defendant’s post-conviction claim of trial counsel’s failure to preserve his search claim was not briefed on appeal and it’s waived. State v. Assad, 2019 Neb. App. LEXIS 70 (Mar. 11, 2019).*

Georgia grants review of whether “the search and seizure of the airbag control module violates the Fourth Amendment?” and whether inevitable discovery applies. Mobley v. State, 2019 Ga. LEXIS 176 (Mar. 11, 2019).*
