N.D.Okla.: While an attachment was missing from the official SW it was at the scene of the search, so no prejudice

The government conceded that Attachment C to the mail search warrant was missing from it, and thus that it led to a potentially overbroad search. The search team, however, all had copies of Attachment C, and it was at the scene of the search to limit it. Therefore, the good faith exception applies to the search because the searching officers did nothing wrong. United States v. Hongjin Tan, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 91397 (N.D. Okla. May 31, 2019).

2254 appellant doesn’t get a certificate of appealability. He can’t show the state court findings are unreasonable or that he was prejudiced by anything he complains about. One was a failure to contest a search claim which isn’t shown cognizable in a 2254. Mendelson v. Fla. Dep’t of Corr., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 16329 (11th Cir. May 30, 2019).*
