CA9: Franks challenge has to include showing lack of PC

On a Franks challenge, “Defendant failed to establish that, if additional information about the informant’s credibility had been included, the affidavit would have been insufficient to establish probable cause.” United States v. Carter, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 22478 (9th Cir. Aug. 25, 2023).

Plaintiff’s claim that his arrest for a minor offense wasn’t observed by the officer was waived. Brackbill v. Ruff, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 22323 n.2 (3d Cir. Aug. 24, 2023).*

“Because the record establishes that T.F.-G. was resisting what a reasonable person would have recognized as Ferrante’s attempt to detain him, Villaruz had probable cause to arrest him. We therefore reject T.F.-G.’s challenge to the lawfulness of the search incident to that arrest.” In re T.F.-G., 2023 Cal. App. LEXIS 639 (6th Dist. Aug. 24, 2023).*

A search warrant for transactions on an EBT card helped lead to a murder charge. On habeas, that’s not a claim. Hoyle v. Williams, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 148937 (E.D. Pa. July 28, 2023),* adopted 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 146525 (E.D. Pa. Aug. 21, 2023).*
