CA5: GFE to scope of search moots inquiring into PC

Because the good faith exception applied to the scope of search, the merits of the justification for the warrant is moot. United States v. Edwards, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 1032 (5th Cir. Jan. 17, 2023).

A passenger didn’t have standing to challenge a search of a U-Haul truck. United States v. Langford, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 1004 (9th Cir. Jan. 17, 2023).*

Fourth Amendment ineffective assistance of counsel claim fails: “The district court correctly concluded Watson’s Fourth Amendment claim was not viable. Even accepting Watson’s factual description of the incident as true, the officer had reasonable suspicion there were drugs in the car, justifying a prolonged stop.” It was also waived by the guilty plea. Watson v. United States, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 998 (11th Cir. Jan. 17, 2023).*
