CA4: Def gets remand of unexplained warrantless search condition on supervised release

The condition of supervised release that defendant submit to warrantless searches wasn’t explained to him or justified. Remanded. United States v. Davila, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 12714 (4th Cir. May 23, 2023).

Plaintiff’s driving, observed by an officer and caught on video, justified the stop. A handcuffing injury wasn’t attributable to the officer without notice it would exacerbate a preexisting condition. Scott v. City of Mandeville, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 12729 (5th Cir. May 23, 2023).*

The independent source doctrine justified this search, so the question of whether manipulating the key fob was a search was moot. United States v. Miller, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 12720 (7th Cir. May 23, 2023).

Loose marijuana in defendant’s car justified its further search, and that included his backpack. United States v. Wilson, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 89570 (E.D. La. May 23, 2023).*
