MI: Terry justified this search and seizure, not plain feel

The court of appeals erred in not applying Terry to this frisk inside defendant’s coat, instead relying on plain feel. Remanded. People v. Turner, 2023 Mich. LEXIS 937 (June 21, 2023).

“Here, the warrant specifically identified the offenses for which probable cause had been established, described the place to be searched, and included an illustrative list of items to be seized in relation to the designated crimes. This illustrative list — which was subject to a temporal limitation and which specifically identified the companies at the core of the government’s investigation, other individuals suspected of being involved in the scheme, and several specific categories of relevant documents — provided meaningful guidance for the officers executing the search as to render the warrant sufficiently ‘particularized.’” United States v. Discala, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 15636 (2d Cir. June 22, 2023).*

Plaintiff’s complaint against the search and seizure that led to his indictment states no facts. That’s reason enough to dismiss it, but the court also finds it all barred by Heck v. Humphrey. Daniels v. Dist., 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 15644 (10th Cir. June 22, 2023).*
