S.D.Ohio: Pole cam observation of def with blunt was RS for stop

Zooming in on a pole cam video, officers determined that defendant had a blunt in his hand when he was getting in his car. The question is reasonable suspicion, and officers don’t have to exhaust the innocent possibilities before acting on it. United States v. Ford, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 67519 (S.D. Ohio Apr. 5, 2021).*

Plaintiff’s Fourth Amendment malicious prosecution claim under § 1983 was time barred. Smith v. Mitchell, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 10021 (11th Cir. Apr. 7, 2021).*

A dog sniff within the normal time to conduct a basic traffic stop was reasonable, here 19 minutes before the dog arrived and alerted. United States v. Hill, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 67281 (S.D. Ohio Apr. 7, 2021).*
