Collins v. Virginia on remand: GFE saves the search

Collins v. Virginia on remand: The good faith exception applies to sustain the search because no reasonably well trained officer would have known that automobile exception would apply on the curtilage in the garage. Collins v. Commonwealth, 2019 Va. LEXIS 36 (Mar. 28, 2019).

Remember that Rodriguez lost on remand, too. So much for the rule that the winning litigant at least gets the benefit of the “new” rule created in his or her case.
