D.Nev.: Def’s motion to join codef’s motion to suppress requires showing of REP in joinder motion

Defendant’s motion to join a codefendant’s motion to suppress requires a showing of his reasonable expectation of privacy in the joinder motion. United States v. Palafox, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 3698 (D. Nev. Jan. 7, 2020).

“[T]he affidavit includes facts supporting probable cause that evidence of a crime would be found in the residence. The confidential source accounts, homicide investigation, and police surveillance detailed above and in the affidavit suggest that, in order to purchase methamphetamine from Danny Burks, customers would knock on the garage door and then, if unsuccessful, proceed to the front door.” Other drug buyers had been seen there for that purpose, too. United States v. Butler, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 224486 (D. Nev. Nov. 20, 2019),* adopted 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 3198 (D.Nev. Jan. 8, 2020).*
