CA11: Standing required for 41(g) motion for return of property

The district court did not abuse its discretion in declining equitable jurisdiction under Rule 41(g) for lack of a threshold showing of standing and justiciability. United States v. Stoune, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 1178 (11th Cir. Jan. 15, 2021).

The officer watched defendant leave a house party and get in his car to drive off. Defendant walked by and exhibited apparent signs of intoxication which would justify a stop. State v. Casatelli, 2021 ND 11, 2021 N.D. LEXIS 8 (Jan. 12, 2021).*

Probable cause was shown for the search warrant for defendant’s place based on his being an enforcer for a DTO, not just a drug dealer. Moreover, the good faith exception applies. United States v. Cater, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 7866 (W.D. Ky. Jan. 15, 2021).*
