D.Md.: Body armor found during vehicle search in drug case not more prejudicial than relevant

Body armor found during a vehicle search under a warrant is not excluded as more prejudicial than relevant under F.R.E. 403. This is a drug case, and it’s no more prejudicial than the drugs and firearms that presumably will be admitted. United States v. Nelson, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 200526 (D. Md. Nov. 2, 2022).*

There was probable cause to search defendant’s hotel room. Even if there wasn’t, the good faith exception applies. United States v. Evans, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 199439 (D.N.J. Nov. 2, 2022).*

There clearly was probable cause for the warrant for defendant’s CSLI because of text messages about drug trafficking. United States v. Ortega, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 200110 (S.D.N.Y. Nov. 2, 2022).*

Defendant’s tossing a firearm to the ground as police approached was reasonable suspicion. It turned out he was a felon. United States v. Rucker, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 200431 (E.D. Mo. Oct. 14, 2022).*
