TX14: SW to take blood includes ability to forensically test it

The search warrant for taking defendant’s blood included the ability to forensically test it. The fact that the forensic analysis of defendant’s blood occurred at a date beyond the three-day window for execution of the warrant did not render the search warrant stale. Ramirez v. State, 2020 Tex. App. LEXIS 8422 (Tex. App. – Houston (14th Dist.) Oct. 27, 2020).

The suppression hearing only showed defense counsel challenging the propriety of questioning of the passengers in the car and not the cause for the stop. That latter issue is waived. State v. Austin, 2020 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 695 (Oct. 27, 2020).*

Plaintiff plausibly alleged a trespassory search of his home under Jardines and survives summary judgment. Arnold v. Williams, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 33729 (5th Cir. Oct. 23, 2020).*
