NY4: Failure to complete inventory report of the search doesn’t void search

“Contrary to defendant’s contention, even assuming, arguendo, that the police officers failed to comply with the inventory provisions of CPL 690.50(5), we conclude that noncompliance with that subdivision ‘does not undermine the validity of the search warrant or the search’” People v. Liepke, 2020 NY Slip Op 03313, 2020 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 3435 (4th Dept. June 12, 2020).

A comment from a state trial judge about what warrant was when defendant was in his state bank robbery case didn’t bind the federal government or court when the bank robbery case was indicted federally. The issue wasn’t presented on direct appeal, but instead by a 2255. It wasn’t barred by the Rooker/Feldman doctrine. CoA denied. Myles v. United States, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 18591 (6th Cir. June 11, 2020).*
