CA6: With PC, car can be searched on impound lot

Officers had probable cause to search defendant’s car for a hidden gun while it was on the impound lot. The automobile exception or inventory applied, so no warrant was required. United States v. Nuyen, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 1608 (6th Cir. Jan. 21, 2021).*

Plaintiff’s claim his search and prosecution were based on free speech because he posted critical billboards on his property is completely speculative. Moreover, it’s waived for appeal. CoA denied. Houston v. United States, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 1575 (6th Cir. Jan. 20, 2021).*

The District Court decided the search was unreasonable based on a Miranda violation. Remanded to also consider voluntariness of consent. That court is in the best position to apply the law to the facts. United States v. Mora-Alcaraz, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 1613 (9th Cir. Jan. 21, 2021).*
