CA2: Failure to fully articulate 4A argument in brief is waiver

“Although Plaintiff references her Fourth Amendment claims against the unidentified police officers in her list of ‘questions presented,’ she makes no argument to support those claims in her brief. See Appellant Br. 2, 6-13. We therefore view these claims as abandoned and decline to consider them on appeal.” Aouatif v. City of New York, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 21265 (2d Cir. July 7, 2020).*

The traffic stop was justified by following too close, and basic questioning developed reasonable suspicion. United States v. Howard, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 21269 (6th Cir. July 7, 2020).*
