IA: Navigable waters belong to the state, no matter who owns the bottom land; stop was based on RS

Defendant claims his stop for boating under the influence wasn’t valid under the Fourth Amendment and Iowa Constitution because the body of water sat over private lands. Navigable waters belong to the state, and the officer had reasonable suspicion to stop. State v. Meyers, 2020 Iowa Sup. LEXIS 12 (Jan. 31, 2020).*

When the Ninth Circuit gets a case on qualified immunity and affirms only on one prong, that does not preclude litigating the second prong in state court, following Restatement (Second) of Judgments section 27 comment o (1982). Paulos v. FCH1, LLC, 2020 Nev. LEXIS 1 (Jan. 30, 2020).*
