D.Mont.: Tracking warrant issue date was a typo; whether state law was complied with doesn’t matter in federal court

The tracking warrant issue date was mistaken. The court finds it was the latter of two dates, and the tracking occurred for only five days, within the requirements of Rule 41(e)(2)(C). Whether the tracking warrant complied with state law is irrelevant in federal court. United States v. Isget, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 27394 (D. Mont. Feb. 18, 2020).

2255 petitioner’s IAC search claim fails: “even if counsel had made the additional arguments proffered by Petitioner, the motion to suppress would still have been denied.” Pierce v. United States, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 27203 (D.S.C. Feb. 18, 2020).*
