DE: When defense to rape is consent, 4A claim against DNA test doesn’t matter

Where the defense was consent, the alleged ineffective assistance of counsel in failing to move to suppress DNA results can’t be ineffectiveness. State v. Elder, 2023 Del. Super. LEXIS 770 (Sep. 13, 2023).*

CBP officers used an “escort hold” on plaintiff at the border when he pulled his arms away from them, and this was not unreasonable. Voeltz v. United States, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 163240 (C.D. Cal. Aug. 23, 2023).*

The CI’s information wasn’t as detailed as defendant asks, but that’s not required by the Fourth Amendment. Otherwise, the information provided probable cause. United States v. Cantrell, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 163666 (N.D.W. Va. Sep. 14, 2023).*
