D.N.M.: Search and seizure claim against USSG enhancement doesn’t have to be decided; it applies another way

Defendant sort of raised a search claim as attacking a USSG enhancement, but the court finds that the enhancement applies no matter what. Martinez v. United States, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 154693 (D. N.M. Sept. 11, 2019).*

Defendant’s unconstitutional arrest led to his statement, and it is suppressed. No break in chain of events. United States v. Rollins, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 154677 (D. S.C. Sept. 11, 2019).*

“Even accepting Peake’s characterization of the video interview as accurate, it would not show that Officer Baker made ‘reckless and materially false statements’ in the search warrant affidavit that would need to be stricken.” It simply isn’t material to the probable cause finding. United States v. Peake, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 156102 (E.D. Va. Aug. 20, 2019).*
