CA5: Typo on an IP address in affidavit for SW that nobody noticed doesn’t void the search; GFE applies

A typographical error in an IP address in the affidavit for search warrant was overlooked by everybody, and it was reasonable for the police to still rely on it under the good faith exception. United States v. Gonzalez, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 10226 (5th Cir. Apr. 8, 2019).

There was probable cause for a search warrant for a surveillance DVR on property adjoining defendant’s as to what it could have seen [and there is no discussion of standing]. United States v. Waide, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 60014 (E.D. Ky. Apr. 9, 2019).*

Deception to get defendant to come back to the courthouse to ask him about his phone and then for consent to search it didn’t void the consent. United States v. Ricks, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 59608 (E.D. Tex. Apr. 8, 2019).*
