The state supreme court having found defendant’s arrest unlawful, his statement during the arrest should have been suppressed. People v. Hammerlund, 2021 Mich. App. LEXIS 3773 (June 17, 2021) (2-1) (dissent).

Detention under the Material Witness Statute that was validly issued prohibits an inquiry into the subjective intent; i.e., whether they will be later indicted. In re M/V Joanna, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 114281 (E.D. La. June 18, 2021).

The traffic stop being valid, the rest that flowed from it was reasonable. United States v. Mack, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 18295 (5th Cir. June 18, 2021).*

Plaintiff’s claim that his alleged false arrest was based on disputed facts doesn’t state a claim. Probable cause doesn’t require that kind of analysis. Thornton v. Lymous, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 18287 (5th Cir. June 18, 2021).*
