CA9: Info of illegal search was put into second SW affidavit and independent PC was shown

In a felon in possession case, there was a prior illegal search by state troopers. ATF picked up the case immediately and applied for a search warrant that included the information from the illegal search, and there was independent evidence for probable cause. United States v. Kuzmin, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 23704 (9th Cir. Aug. 8, 2019).*

The officer could order defendant out of the car on a traffic stop. The officer could see a firearm sticking out from under the seat in plain view. United States v. Jenkins, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 23706 (9th Cir. Aug. 8, 2019).*

The stop was extended in part because the officer had to manually entered insurance information into the police car’s computer. Thus, the stop was not extended unreasonably [20 minutes? Court erroneously applies the de minimus standard rejected in Rodriguez.] United States v. Gholston, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 133333 (C.D. Ill. Aug. 8, 2019).*
