N.D.Ill.: City’s destruction of street cam video was not shown to be in bad faith

Defendant’s motion to dismiss for a discovery violation in not timely processing a subpoena for a street corner camera that allegedly would show that defendant’s turn signal was on and the stop was wrong is denied. The city didn’t timely process it, and the video was ultimately purged, but it wasn’t shown to be in bad faith. United States v. Caudle, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 1001 (N.D. Ill. Jan. 4, 2023).*

A Fourth Amendment claim in federal court is considered as brought under § 1983. Tinsley v. Fox, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 995 (W.D. Ky. Jan. 4, 2023).*

2255 claim that defense counsel was ineffective for not raising a Fourth Amendment claim is rejected because he did and he appealed on that ground, too. United States v. Mosley, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 1408 (M.D. Pa. Jan. 4, 2023).*
