CT: Entry onto def’s deck was for community caretaking function

The officer’s entry onto defendant’s deck here was of a community caretaking function to inform defendant that a loved one was going to the hospital. It was like a knock-and-talk. State v. Kuehn, 2022 Conn. Super. LEXIS 2075 (Sep. 13, 2022).

An SCA (Stored Communications Act) order in 2015 was complied with. It wasn’t clear until 2020 that those orders violated Arizona law. Therefore, no suppression. United States v. Rakestraw, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 184209 (D. Ariz. Oct. 6, 2022).*

The officer acted diligently with the tasks related to the stop as it unfolded, and he did not drag it out. Moving defendant’s backpack was not a meaningful interference with his possessory interest. United States v. Murray, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 183890 (W.D. Mo. Aug. 10, 2022).*
