W.D.Pa.: Def’s effort to make a felony stop fit under Rodriguez fails

Despite his lack of standing, defendant seeks to cast this automobile exception search as having its genesis in an overlong traffic stop, thus unreasonable under Rodriguez. This was not just a traffic stop; it was a felony stop, and the automobile exception clearly applies and he lacks standing. United States v. Rushin-Felder, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 60806 (W.D. Pa. Apr. 10, 2019).

Skype was not a state actor in sending child pornography that it found to NCMEC, and the officer didn’t expand the search. Six months wasn’t too old for staleness. United States v. Tatomer, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 61464 (D. Nev. Apr. 10, 2019).

Defendant’s arrest near drugs was with probable cause. United States v. Sylvester, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 61223 (N.D. Ind. Apr. 10, 2019).*
