D.Minn.: Def was a parole absconder with a cell phone; PC existed for a warrant for a ping of the cell phone to find him

Defendant was a state parole absconder, and the officers got a warrant for a tracking order on the phone to find him, and it was issued with probable cause he’d be found with his phone. In any event, the good faith exception applied. United States v. Boswell, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 175360 (D. Minn. Oct. 9, 2019), adopting, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 176398 (D. Minn. Aug. 29, 2019).

There were fact questions for trial and the district court erred in granting summary judgment for the officers on plaintiff’s excessive force claim for unnecessarily assaulting him in the jail at book-in. Capra v. Knapp, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 30270 (3d Cir. Oct. 9, 2019).*
