CA10: Code enforcement officer coming to ptf’s door to talk to him didn’t violate curtilage

A city code enforcement officer who came to plaintiff’s door for a couple of minutes to attempt to talk to him about a sign code violation did not violate the curtilage. Clark v. City of Williamsburg, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 1001 (10th Cir. Jan. 14, 2021).

Defendant failed in his burden of proof to show a Franks violation or a lack of probable cause. There was no plain error that the search warrant was stale, either. United States v. Pettaway, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 1005 (11th Cir. Jan. 14, 2021).*

Failure to file a motion to suppress a witness’s testimony isn’t ineffective assistance of counsel since that’s not a valid claim. Galbreth v. United States, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 7371 (S.D. Miss. Jan. 14, 2021).*
