NE: Where the smell of MJ justifies the search, the finding of a small quantity doesn’t require the search end

Defendant’s stop was for over-tinted windows. The officer could smell burnt marijuana, and he searched finding some in the console. Finding that, he was not obligated to stop searching. State v. Valentine, 27 Neb. App. 332, 2019 Neb. App. LEXIS 332 (Oct. 29, 2019).

Defendant lacked standing in a vehicle as a passenger and in a backpack that he disclaimed ownership of. United States v. Gage, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 188360 (D. Idaho Oct. 28, 2019).*

Plaintiff’s federal Administrative Procedure Act case for Fourth Amendment violations is dismissed. State agencies can’t be sued under it. Orr v. Tenn. Bureau of Investigation, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 32595 (6th Cir. Oct. 30, 2019).*
