E.D.Ky.: Late night view through def’s apartment window violated Jardines but there was still PC without it

Officers conducted a drug investigation into defendant’s apartment and ultimately went to his window in the night to look in and used a flashlight. That was a violation of the Fourth Amendment under Jardines, and the view has to be suppressed. Still, there was probable cause after excising it from the affidavit. United States v. Duncan, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 179331 (E.D.Ky. Sept. 29, 2020).

Driving for 100 yards with both right wheels over the fog line is reasonable suspicion for a stop. State v. Devan, 2020 Ida. App. LEXIS 70 (Sept. 28, 2020).*

The government found defendant’s Instagram “handle” by publicly searching Instagram and not his cell phone. Therefore, it wasn’t fruit of the poisonous tree. United States v. White, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 178848 (S.D. N.Y. Sept. 28, 2020).*
