OH10: Anonymous 911 call didn’t support def’s stop

A 911 anonymous tipster’s call wasn’t justification for defendant’s stop because it was wrong as to clothing and it essentially described all the black men in the area. State v. Walton, 2020-Ohio-5062, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 3906 (10th Dist. Oct. 27, 2020).

The district court credited the officer over others that he could see through the tinted windows for a plain view, and that’s not clear error. United States v. Joseph, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 33805 (11th Cir. Oct. 27, 2020).*

There was reasonable suspicion for a stop based on defendant signaling a turn that he’d already started. Franklin v. State, 2020 Tex. App. LEXIS 8438 (Tex. App. – Houston (14th Dist.) Oct. 27, 2020).*

There was probable cause for the search warrant for child pornography, and, even if there wasn’t, the good faith exception would apply. United States v. Schave, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 199682 (D. Minn. Oct. 27, 2020).*

The smell of marijuana coming from defendant during the traffic stop justified expanding it. United States v. Thompson, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 199756 (S.D. W.Va. Oct. 27, 2020).*

“On balance, we conclude Officer West reasonably applied modest forward pressure to a visibly intoxicated and uncooperative Mr. Rowell to guide him down the hallway.” The officer prevails. Rowell v. Bd. of County Comm’rs, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 33813 (10th Cir. Oct. 27, 2020).*
