N.D.Cal.: Prolonging traffic stop to inquire of probation or parole status unreasonable

Prolonging the traffic stop for further information on defendant’s parole and probation status was unreasonable. It diverted from the traffic stop. United States v. Gould, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 142915 (N.D. Cal. Aug. 10, 2022).

The protective sweep of defendant’s house was reasonable because officers saw other armed men enter the house at various times. United States v. Nunez, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 22195 (9th Cir. Aug. 10, 2022).

Despite medical marijuana being lawful in the state, the smell of raw marijuana can still support probable cause for a search. State v. Hall, 2022-Ohio-2772, 2022 Ohio App. LEXIS 2620 (8th Dist. Aug. 8, 2022).

The state failed to prove exigency for a warrantless blood draw in a DUI case. State v. Blancas, 2022 Ida. LEXIS 91 (Aug. 11, 2022).*
