OH8: No PC for hot pursuit into house on less than RS

The state showed no probable cause to justify a warrantless entry into the home of a fleeing misdemeanant. Police got a citizen’s report of a possible impaired driver. When they found the car, it had just pulled into the driveway where it belonged. City of Westlake v. Roberts, 2022-Ohio-3675, 2022 Ohio App. LEXIS 3459 (8th Dist. Oct. 13, 2022).

Defendant gave his passcode to his cell phone when he was arrested, and he claimed it was under coercive circumstances. The government isn’t seeking anything to admit anything off the cell phone anyway, so it’s moot. United States v. Hearst, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 187824 (N.D. Ga. Oct. 14, 2022).*

Plaintiff may not “skip ahead” to federal court to try to enjoin a state prosecution under Younger. Tate v. Milwaukee Police Dep’t Criminal Investigation Bureau & City of Milwaukee, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 187164 (E.D. Wis. Oct. 13, 2022).*
