CA4: Bank robbery def abandoned the getaway car and his cell phone in it

“[T]he district court did not clearly err by finding that Pridgen abandoned the getaway vehicle and his cell phone, and, thus, the court did not err by finding that he lacked a reasonable expectation of privacy in those items when they were searched.” United States v. Pridgen, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 27545 (4th Cir. Oct. 3, 2022).

“With respect to plaintiff’s claim that she was threatened with violence if she did not complete the search, the allegation that Moreland told her that other officers would be called to assist if plaintiff did not comply with the search does not render the search unreasonable or equate to a threat of physical violence. Finally, assuming Moreland did in fact comment to another officer that she did not trust plaintiff because she leaked [and peed on herself some], though embarrassing, this does not violate plaintiff’s constitutional rights.” Belyew v. Honea, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 180166 (E.D. Cal. Sep. 30, 2022).*

Running an LPN on a vehicle is not a search. People v. Dicke, 2022 NY Slip Op 22306, 2022 N.Y. Misc. LEXIS 5111 (Town Ct. Sep. 22, 2022).*
