MI Const. search and seizure provision is not coextensive with 4A

The Michigan Supreme Court sets aside part of a Court of Appeals decision that says that the Michigan Constitution’s search and seizure provision is coextensive with the Fourth Amendment because it’s not. Otherwise, it declines review of the decision. People v. Katzman, 2020 Mich. LEXIS 894 (May 8, 2020).

“[F]ailure to cite relevant case law” isn’t a ground for ineffective assistance of counsel on post-conviction of a Fourth Amendment claim when (1) defendant doesn’t say what it was that wasn’t cited to show a failure of performance, and (2) the facts clearly show abandonment. State v. Jackson, 2020 Del. Super. LEXIS 219 (May 8, 2020).*
