E.D.N.C.: Shed on curtilage shown on Google satellite image attached to affidavit was properly searched although not specified in SW

A shed by the house was properly searched under a warrant for the house. “As a general rule, a supporting affidavit or document may be read together with (and considered a part of) a warrant that otherwise lacks sufficient particularity ‘if the warrant uses appropriate words of incorporation, and if the supporting document accompanies the warrant.’ Hurwitz, 459 F.3d at 471 (quoting Groh v. Ramirez, 540 U.S. 551, 557-58 (2004)).” It was shown in the satellite view and it’s on the curtilage. A safe inside the house didn’t have to be separately itemized as a place to be searched. United States v. Oliver, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 26633 (E.D.N.C. Jan. 29, 2024), adopted, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 25395 (E.D.N.C. Feb. 14, 2024).

2254 petitioner’s Fourth Amendment claim is barred by Stone v. Powell. He litigated it in state court and lost. This court is not free to adopt the dissenting opinion in Stone. Hays v. Bracy, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 26655 (N.D. Ohio Jan. 26, 2024).*

There is no reasonable expectation of privacy in trash left out for collection. The subjective claim of an expectation fails. United States v. Lee, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 3608 (5th Cir. Feb. 15, 2024).*
