CA2: SW for premises was particular despite claim part of it was multifamily

The search warrant application didn’t mention that the premises was actually a multifamily dwelling. It appeared not to be, and the IP information for a child pornography search warrant came back to that address as a whole. “Regardless of whether the sunroom could be considered a separate ‘apartment,’ the search warrant satisfied the Fourth Amendment’s particularity requirement.” United States v. Gibeault, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 36162 (2d Cir. Dec. 8, 2021).

There was an objective basis for defendant’s traffic stop. Not only that, there was reasonable suspicion of drugs based on collective knowledge of the officer reporting to the stopping officer. United States v. Vazquez, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 235683 (S.D.Tex. Dec. 9, 2021).*

In this child pornography case, the defendant moves to suppress the search of defendant’s iCloud storage off a cell phone search warrant. The government says it will not be using anything from there, so it’s now moot. United States v. Glatz, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 235909 (E.D.Tenn. Dec. 9, 2021).*
