CA, Solano Co.: City govts can’t use cell site simulators without adopting a specific privacy policy under CA law

When a California local government agency buys a cell site simulator, state law requires a privacy policy be adopted for it. A writ of mandate is granted preventing the respondent city from using it until a policy complying with state law is adopted. Oakland Privacy v. Vallejo, FCS054805 (Super. Ct. Solano Co. Nov. 23, 2020).

The officer had reasonable suspicion to continue the stop after seeing the paperwork on the vehicle and the driver because of how he drove, taking his time to stop, and other things. The nearly four minute wait for a Spanish speaking officer to arrive thus wasn’t unreasonable. Avila-Trujillo v. State, 2021 Tex. App. LEXIS 16 (Tex. App. – Austin Jan. 5, 2021).*
