CA11: Failure to seek review of R&R is waiver

Defendant did not seek review of the R&R by the USDJ, so appellate review was waived. Also, plain error review not sought. United States v. Fisher, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 37847 (11th Cir. Dec. 21, 2021).

Citizen complaint from the owner of a business complaining that drug use was happening on his parking lot after hours wasn’t enough of a basis for a stop. The officers had to corroborate something. When they came to roust the cars, they saw drugs in plain view. Suppression order affirmed. [Elsewhere this probably would have gone differently.] Commonwealth v. Rohrbach, 2021 PA Super 254, 2021 Pa. Super. LEXIS 744 (Dec. 22, 2021).*

Defendant former Chicago PD officers’ conspiracy convictions affirmed. They were convicted of conspiring to present false search warrant affidavits, among other things, and stealing the product of searches, giving some to informants. The FBI finally ran a sting on them. United States v. Elizondo, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 37843 (7th Cir. Dec. 21, 2021).*
