S.D.Ind.: CSLI search two years before Carpenter was valid under GFE

The Seventh Circuit held in dicta in 2014 that CSLI didn’t need a warrant. United States v. Thousand, 558 Fed. Appx. 666, 670 (7th Cir. 2014). The search here was two years before Carpenter. Davis good faith applies, and the exclusionary rule does not apply. United States v. Reyes, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 118808 (S.D. Ind. July 17, 2018).

Defendant was stopped because his windshield was tinted. When the officer got to the driver’s window, he could smell burnt marijuana. This led to a search of the person that produced drugs, and the motion to suppress is denied. United States v. Conway, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 118931 (E.D. Ky. July 17, 2018).*
