E.D.N.Y.: Lack of a DL doesn’t deny standing in a borrowed car

Defendant had standing to challenge the stop and search of a car he’d borrowed with permission of the owner despite the lack of a driver’s license, but he loses on the merits. United States v. Zimmerman, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 148101 (E.D. N.Y. Aug. 14, 2020).

Defendant moved out of his ex-girlfriend’s house and left behind a thumb drive. She found files that made her suspicious, and she got a friend to recover deleted files. This was a private search, aside from the abandonment. State v. Ross, 2020-Ohio-4109, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 3003 (11th Dist. Aug. 17, 2020).*

Just assuming that there were false statements in the affidavit for the search warrant for defendant’s BAC and striking it, the remainder shows probable cause, so there was no error in not suppressing. Washington v. State, 2020 Tex. App. LEXIS 6581 (Tex. App. – Houston (14th Dist.) Aug. 18, 2020).*
