CA6: No REP in a shipped package after it was received by another

Defendant had no reasonable expectation of privacy in a package shipped to and then received by another. Moreover, there was probable cause for a search of the car the package was in and the package, too. United States v. Moore, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 12372 (6th Cir. Apr. 16, 2020).

Police received information defendant was dealing drugs from a motel room. They sent a drug dog to inquire, and the dog alerted at the room door. Absent proof from the defendant that the motel room was his home, the dog sniff outside the door in a common area was reasonable.
People v. Lindsey, 2020 IL 124289, 2020 Ill. LEXIS 387 (Apr. 16, 2020) (4-2).

The search of defendant’s cell phone for evidence supporting the state’s claim defendant shot her victim was particular as to the dates of false claims the victim raped her. In addition, it was harmless error if error at all. Rickman v. State, 2020 Ga. LEXIS 279 (Apr. 20, 2020).*
