LA4: Def has no REP in his shooting victim’s Instagram account

Defendant was accused of a murder. The state got a search warrant for the victim’s Instagram account, and he moved to suppress. [Remember, Louisiana gives broad standing, but, still] He has no reasonable expectation of privacy in the place searched. State v. Johnson, 2019 La. App. LEXIS 1389 (La. App. 4 Cir. Aug. 7, 2019).

When the car defendant was in was stopped, the officer recognized him as a guy suspected of theft of two firearms the day before. Therefore, a frisk was proper. United States v. Harvey, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 133661 (W.D. Mo. July 19, 2019).*

The affidavit for seizure of a child by protective services was allegedly defective. Adding in the omitted information still shows probable cause, and the defendants get qualified immunity. Marks v. Hudson, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 23716 (5th Cir. Aug. 8, 2019).*
