E.D.Mich.: Jones didn’t alter the automobile exception

The automobile exception is intact as it always was, and Jones didn’t do anything to change the calculus. United States v. Lee, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 99900 (E.D. Mich. June 14, 2019).

The government proved that it would have otherwise sought a search warrant after the knock-and-talk because they had a wealth of probable cause and they needed to act. They chose the knock-and-talk first before the evidence could disappear. The knock-and-talk led to a plain view. United States v. Anguiano, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 98336 (D. Minn. June 11, 2019).*

Plaintiff sued alleging the police caused $20,000 damages during the search of his place. The district court denied summary judgment on qualified immunity for defendants without an individual analysis of what defendant did what. Norris v. Williams, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 17528 (11th Cir. June 12, 2019).*
