TX8: Defense subpoena to complaining witness for cell phone dump wasn’t authorized by statute

A defense subpoena to the complaining witness seeking a cell phone dump was beyond the powers of the statute authorizing the subpoenas. A conditional writ of mandamus granted. In re State, 2020 Tex. App. LEXIS 2192 (Tex. App. – El Paso Mar. 13, 2020).

The lack of findings on reasonable suspicion requires a remand. People v. Grimes, 2020 NY Slip Op 01818, 2020 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 1792 (4th Dept. Mar. 13, 2020).*

Defendant’s encounter on an interstate bus became repeatedly consensual as it progressed. United States v. Graves, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 44022 (W.D. Mo. Mar. 3, 2020),* adopted, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 41726 (W.D. Mo. Mar. 10, 2020).*
