WA: Arrestee’s right to advice of right to counsel doesn’t require stopping execution of SW to tell him

While an arrestee is entitled to a prompt notice of his right to counsel, police do not have to interrupt execution of a search warrant to do it. State v. Ackerman, 2019 Wash. App. LEXIS 3023 (Dec. 2, 2019).

Officers collectively had reasonable suspicion for defendant’s stop. United States v. Loethen, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 207450 (W.D. Mo. Nov. 14, 2019).*

Plaintiff claimed his cell phone was unreasonably searched, but he filed suit long after the statute of limitations ran. In addition, the law was not clearly established in Florida by any case until at least two years later so qualified immunity would apply, too. Mathis v. Vizcarrondo, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 35755 (11th Cir. Dec. 2, 2019).*
