CA10: Walking up to def sitting on parked car to talk to him wasn’t a stop

Walking up to defendant sitting on his parked car and talking to him, without blocking the path of the car and no police lights, was not a seizure. State v. McCall, 2020-Ohio-84, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 69 (10th Dist. Jan. 14, 2020).*

The district court technically erred in holding that defendant couldn’t make a Sixth Amendment ineffective assistance of counsel challenge to his search in his 2255, but the underlying issue was already decided in the direct appeal, so he can’t prevail. No COA. Sereme v. United States, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 1017 (11th Cir. Jan. 10, 2020).*

Defendant’s statements were voluntary, so they could be included in the search warrant application. United States v. Ray, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 1031 (10th Cir. Jan. 13, 2020).*
