CA5: § 1983 4A claim that evidence was inadmissible at trial was Heck barred, and then waived on appeal

Plaintiff’s § 1983 Fourth Amendment claim was framed as a claim the evidence was inadmissible at trial. Thus it was barred. His appeal was over denial of IFP status, which was also denied, and he waived the Fourth Amendment claim on appeal. Bradley v. Nash, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 29084 (5th Cir. Sept. 14, 2020).*

The unchallenged parts of the search warrant affidavit show probable cause, so the Franks motion fails. United States v. Kendrick, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 29166 (5th Cir. Sept. 14, 2020) (withdrawn), subst. op. 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 34865 (5th Cir. Nov. 3, 2020).*

Virtually the same is United States v. Moon, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 167948 (N.D. Ala. Sept. 14, 2020).*
