E.D.Cal.: Stop for expired registration during Covid extension of time to register cars was objectively unreasonable

The stop of defendant’s car for expired tags but within the period of the state’s Covid executive order extending time to register cars was objectively not reasonable, even where the officer was unaware of the meaning of the EO. United States v. Castillo, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 48480 (E.D. Cal. Mar. 19, 2024).

The affidavit for the search warrant for defendant’s cell phone showed probable cause to believe that defendant was involved in his wife’s murder and that cell phone calls were made that could be evidence in the case. Pugh v. State, 2024 Ga. LEXIS 80 (Mar. 14, 2024).*

Probable cause was shown by a common sense reading of the affidavit for defendant’s CSLI to connect him to a murder. State v. Wiggins, 2024 Minn. LEXIS 134 (Mar. 20, 2024).*
