E.D.Pa.: Guest who intended to spend the night had standing

Defendant had standing to contest a search of premises he was visiting and anticipated spending the night. He loses on the merits by his consent. United States v. Mack, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 152664 (E.D. Pa. Aug. 24, 2020).

Defendant’s cell phone search claim is denied because it is directed at the wrong phone because nothing was obtained from that phone. Studivant v. State, 2020 Ga. LEXIS 584 (Aug. 24, 2020).*

It would take 7-10 minutes to write a traffic citation, and the officer asked for consent 5 minutes into the stop and it was valid. It didn’t unreasonably extend the stop because the officer had reasonable suspicion. State v. Sexton, 2020-Ohio-4179, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 3083 (12th Dist. Aug. 24, 2020).*
