D.Kan.: Cross-designated state-federal officer was “federal officer” for assault charge during execution of SW

Assaulting a state officer cross-designated as a federal officer qualified for assaulting a federal officer during execution of a search warrant. United States v. Butler, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 36172 (D. Kan. Mar. 1, 2024).

The state courts did not unreasonably apply the parole search exception to defendant’s case. Delosh v. Upton, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 34300 (W.D. Tenn. Feb. 28, 2024).*

Officers surveilling a mall parking lot saw two suspicious vehicles where the occupants apparently engaged in a hand-to-hand drug transaction. They were able to stop one, and he admitted the drug deal. That was reasonable suspicion as to the other. United States v. Scales, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 34332 (E.D. Tenn. Feb. 28, 2024).*

The CS here provided information for a search warrant but then ghosted the officers. The fact a CS fails to further continue to cooperate is not Franks material. Jordan v. United States, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 35593 (W.D.N.C. Feb. 28, 2024).*
