E.D.Tex.: Govt failed to prove traffic offenses or any RS for stop

There was no justification for defendant’s traffic stop based on two statutes that weren’t violated. The government’s assertion of reasonable suspicion from an anonymous tip also failed. United States v. Salazar, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 234747 (E.D. Tex. Dec. 12, 2022).*

Police made a specific request for a safety sweep of the premises that was founded on objective need. Defendant said “absolutely” and let them in. The plain view was justified. United States v. Mejia-Velazquez, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 2265 (N.D. Ga. Jan. 6, 2023).*

Defendant’s parole search conditions didn’t mention whether one could be justified on reasonable suspicion or less. There was at least reasonable suspicion here. United States v. Tinsley, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 245 (6th Cir. Jan. 4, 2023).*
