E.D.N.Y.: Without knowing what to suppress, motion to suppress is premature

Defendant’s motion to suppress the search of Device A is premature since the product of the search isn’t yet known. Also, his motion to suppress the search of Device B is denied for lack of standing. It isn’t his. United States v. Sterling, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 6852 (E.D.N.Y. Jan. 13, 2023).

Defendant contended that his presence at the scene of the execution of the search warrant amounted to custody for Miranda purposes. He tried to show that the officers manipulated the situation to avoid “custody.” The court disagrees. United States v. Mamadjonov, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 6479 (D. Conn. Jan. 13, 2023).*

An LPN check revealed the registered owner had an expired DL, and the driver’s age appeared roughly the same as the owner. That supported the stop. United States v. Thayer, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 6657 (S.D. W. Va. Jan. 13, 2023).*
