KY: After DL found suspended, stop can be extended

When defendant was stopped and found to have a suspended license, the normal incidents of a traffic stop are accordingly extended, and that didn’t make waiting for a drug dog unreasonable. Olmeda v. Commonwealth, 2020 Ky. App. LEXIS 40 (Apr. 3, 2020).

Plaintiff prison inmate sued over the use of excessive force against him. The district court concluded his bruising was only de minimus injury, and the correctional officers were entitled to qualified immunity. Pierre v. Padgett, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 10508 (11th Cir. Apr. 3, 2020).

The affidavit for search warrant detailed a year long investigation and hand-to-hand transaction, surveillance details of defendant buying 3 kg of cocaine. It was protracted and continuing and that means it wasn’t all stale. United States v. Hubbard, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 58512 (S.D. Ga. Mar. 11, 2020),* adopted, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 57407 (S.D. Ga. Apr. 1, 2020).*
