OH2: Excessive force in stop-and-frisk was unreasonable

Use of excessive bodily force for a stop-and-frisk by lifting defendant into a wall was unreasonable where defendant did nothing to justify it. That required suppressing the stop. State v. Johnson, 2020-Ohio-2742, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 1707 (2d Dist. May 1, 2020).

Defendant’s allegations of ineffective assistance of counsel from failure to file a motion to suppress at least merited a hearing to determine their validity. Schwebel v. State, 2020 Fla. App. LEXIS 5920 (Fla. 2d DCA May 1, 2020).

Search of defendant’s car for evidence of violation of a TRO was unreasonable and unjustified. United States v. Watson, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 76387 (D. Mont. Apr. 13, 2020).
