CA9: Tight handcuffing can be excessive force, but this wasn’t

Tight handcuffing can be excessive force. Here, plaintiff complained, and they were loosened. He had only a slight bruise. That’s normal, and summary judgment was properly granted against that claim. Reyes v. City of Santa Ana, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 33316 (9th Cir. Oct. 22, 2020).*

Smell of marijuana from defendant’s car was probable cause to search it. United States v. Dumas, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 195310 (M.D. Fla. Oct. 21, 2020).*

Defendant’s motion to suppress his protective sweep is denied without prejudice for lack of any specificity. United States v. Zakhari, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 195395 (W.D. Ky. Oct. 21, 2020).*
