D.Minn.: Consent to search cell phone was voluntary after def was told of right to refuse and revoke consent once given

Defendant consented to a seizure and search of his cell phone after being told of his right to refuse and to revoke consent at any time. United States v. Fairbanks, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210371 (D.Minn. Nov. 1, 2021).

Plaintiff was held for five hours without restraints in an interrogation room. Officers obtained a search warrant for his DNA and possible GSR. When they tried to take it, plaintiff refused and he was taken down and beaten. The district court erred in finding the beating was reasonable. Rosser v. Donovan, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 32474 (3d Cir. Nov. 1, 2021).*

A Tulsa police officer had legal authority to stop a member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation for an alleged violation of the traffic laws in the city. The ensuing patdown was reasonable based on various factors, including an admission defendant carried a knife. The initial stop was based in part on a shots fired call that matched defendant’s vehicle description. United States v. Sherwood, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210246 (N.D.Okla. Nov. 1, 2021).*
