W.D.Wash.: DNA warrant isssued with PC not quashed before execution

Because there is probable cause for defendant’s DNA warrant, the court declines to quash it before execution, let alone even discuss what the standard would be to do so. United States v. Campbell, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 53075 (W.D. Wash. Mar. 25, 2024).

In defendant’s motion to withdraw his plea, he included an allegation there were Fourth Amendment defenses to the evidence against him, but nothing is provided to substantiate it. Denied. State v. Warren, 2024-Ohio-1072 (6th Dist. Mar. 22, 2024).*

“When the facts are construed in Mitchell’s favor, a reasonable officer in Wilkey or Brewer’s shoes would have understood that tackling and punching (Wilkey) or hitting and kneeing (Brewer) a handcuffed arrestee who posed no immediate threat to safety, was generally compliant, and was not actively resisting, would violate the Fourth Amendment.” Plaintiff’s strip search for drugs, however, was reasonable. Claim dismissed as to that, reversed as to excessive force. Mitchell v. Hamilton Cty., 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 6923 (6th Cir. Mar. 21, 2024).*
