DC: Accepting a law license is consent to trust account subpoenas

Being a lawyer with a trust account, lawyer’s consent to subpoenas for their trust account. The lawyer’s argument that it’s an unreasonable search is frivolous. In re Doman, 2024 D.C. App. LEXIS 191 (May 16, 2024).

Defendant didn’t show standing by providing an affidavit of ownership of the social media account that was searched. United States v. Swain, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 87759 (W.D.N.Y. May 15, 2024).*

Defendant’s Franks challenge via an ineffective assistance of counsel claim fails for lack of the “substantial preliminary showing.” Therefore, he couldn’t prevail on the merits. United States v. Treadwell, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 87910 (S.D. Ohio May 15, 2024).*

Defendant consented without hesitation to his patdown. Maye v. United States, 2024 D.C. App. LEXIS 190 (May 16, 2024).*
