E.D.Cal.: Def had standing in car he was driving with permission of owner

As the driver of the car and the person with lawful possession, defendant had standing to challenge the search of the car he didn’t own. The GPS warrant for it was based on probable cause, and the warrant for firearms does go stale swiftly. United States v. Sconiers, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 13892 (E.D. Cal. Jan. 26, 2023).*

NCMEC forwarded to North Dakota police a child pornography picture on Snapchat’s public space along with IP and subscriber information. There was no reasonable expectation of privacy in what was posted publicly. United States v. Thompson, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 13650 (D.N.D. Jan. 26, 2023).*

Defendant’s guilty plea waived his Fourth Amendment challenge in the trial court. State v. Leeper, 2023-Ohio-239, 2023 Ohio App. LEXIS 232 (5th Dist. Jan. 27, 2023).*

The officer had reasonable suspicion to confront and stop defendant at a convenience store where his wrecked car was parked outside. Police received an anonymous report the car had just been in an accident, which the officer confirmed. State v. Wilcox, 2023 ME 10, 2023 Me. LEXIS 10 (Jan. 27, 2023).*
