D.Guam: Issuing magistrate’s later recusal for knowing target’s dad doesn’t show he wasn’t neutral and detached

After search warrant was issued, the issuing magistrate recused from the rest of the matter because defendant’s father was a longstanding employee of the court. There apparently was no relationship with defendant. This did not present a constitutional problem for issuance of the warrant. United States v. Guerrero, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 49996 (D.Guam Mar. 18, 2022).

The trial court’s redaction of search warrant papers before their release was shown justified. People v. Stephen, 2022 NY Slip Op 01974, 2022 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 1851 (1st Dept. Mar. 22, 2022).

Defendant’s failure to make a trial objection waived appeal of his motion to suppress. Hostetler v. State, 2022 Ind. App. LEXIS 80 (Mar. 22, 2022).*
