MI: Omission def was a CI was not material where SW was based on possession and sale of drugs

“Agent Merle’s failure to reveal that Brown was a CI for DTF was not a material omission. As discussed previously, the warrant affidavit was based on Brown’s possession and sale of illegal drugs, which did not fall within the scope of his duties as a CI. Brown’s activities as a CI were unrelated to his criminal behavior, which formed the basis for the affidavit.” People v. Brown, 2023 Mich. App. LEXIS 5120 (July 20, 2023).* (So defendant outs himself as a CI?)

The identified CI gave reasonable suspicion for this stop. United States v. Windecker, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 124526 (D.Mont. July 18, 2023).*

Defendant’s successive § 2254 petition claim that the judge issuing the warrant here (“Judge 185”) didn’t exist was essentially presented as a successive petition before in 2022, and it’s denied. In re Jackson, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 18409 (11th Cir. July 19, 2023).*

The district court’s electronic search condition for supervised release was not an abuse of discretion and was related to his being a sex offender. United States v. Cruz-Rivera, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 18449 (7th Cir. July 20, 2023).*
