D.Colo.: Date range isn’t always required by 4A for particularity of cell phone SW

In a cell phone search warrant, “Although Trujillo argues that the date range from May 16, 2022, to present lacked ‘legal justification,’ Trujillo provides no explanation or authority as to how this date range rendered the warrant unconstitutionally general. There is no requirement under the Fourth Amendment that a warrant specify a date range at all.” United States v. Trujillo, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23343 (D. Colo. Feb. 10, 2023).

The traffic stop was justified, as was running the DL. However, the officer held on to the license too long and extended the stop without ending it. The continuation of the stop lacked reasonable suspicion. United States v. Serna, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23083 (D. Ariz. Feb. 10, 2023).

In a stalking and homicide case, the affidavit for search warrant was based on probable cause for his house and electronics. There was nexus and particularity. State v. Chaffier, 2023 Del. Super. LEXIS 70 (Jan. 17, 2023).*

For what it’s worth: search warrant here was issued for records in a public agency. State v. Young, 2023 N.J. Super. LEXIS 14 (Feb. 13, 2023).*
