N.D.Ill.: Sender of package whose name wasn’t on it had standing

Defendant who orchestrated delivery of a package whose name wasn’t on it as sender or recipient had standing in the package. United States v. Williams, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 88747 (N.D. Ill. May 10, 2021):

Here, evidence in the record establishes that both Williams and Black had legitimate privacy interests in the package. While detained in Georgia, Williams made a series of calls to his co-defendants orchestrating the shipment of the package to Chicago. In turn, Black took steps to secure the receipt of the package and was arrested after law enforcement officers executed a warrant at the designated address. This evidence demonstrates defendants’ legitimate privacy interests in the package, and thus, defendants have standing to bring the present motion.
