TX5: lack of a prompt determination of PC to detain def is moot by the time the trial starts

The lack of a prompt determination of probable cause to detain defendant is moot by the time the trial starts. Moses v. State, 2024 Tex. App. LEXIS 950 (Tex. App. – Dallas Feb. 6, 2024).

“Taking as true that Agent Braun did not pull over Cazarez-Carillo, there was no Fourth Amendment seizure. And Cazarez-Carillo does not contest that he consented to a search of the tractor-trailer once Agent Braun approached. Cazarez-Carillo’s Fourth Amendment rights were therefore not violated. In light of that conclusion, we need not reach Cazarez-Carillo’s remaining arguments.” United States v. Cazarez-Carillo, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 2823 (9th Cir. Feb. 7, 2024).*

In this excessive force case, the district court erred in crediting the officer’s version of reasonableness of force without the fact questions created by plaintiff. Anglemeyer v. Ammons, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 2828 (3d Cir. Feb. 7, 2024).*
