FL2: There was suspicion for the stop, but it wasn’t reasonable suspicion

There may have been suspicion for defendant’s stop, but it wasn’t reasonable suspicion. He was potentially dumpster driving at a closed business at night, and he left when he saw the police officer. Vonlydick v. State, 2021 Fla. App. LEXIS 2875 (Fla. 2d DCA Feb. 26, 2021).*

Defendant was a passenger in the vehicle searched without an ownership or possessory interest, so he lacks standing. United States v. Norton, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 35512 (E.D. Tenn. Feb. 18, 2021).*

Defense counsel wasn’t ineffective for not challenging defendant’s search because it was lawful incident to arrest. United States v. Cox, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 35636 (D. Mont. Feb. 24, 2021).*
