WY: Mere citation to state constitution without cogent argument for different treatment is waiver

Citation alone to the state constitution’s search and seizure without cogent argument for differentiating Fourth Amendment cases is waiver. The totality of information before the officer in the traffic stop justified it. Elmore v. State, 2021 Wyo. LEXIS 48 (Mar. 9, 2021).

“Rodriguez’s primary complaint is that his attorneys were not successful in identifying specific false statements and stale information in the 2009 and 2011 search warrant affidavits. Rodriguez, however, fails to identify any alleged false statements or stale information which his attorneys did not raise, or which was not considered either in my two opinions on the subject or the Sixth Circuit’s affirmance of my decisions.” Rodriguez v. United States, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 43205 (N.D. Ohio Mar. 8, 2021).*
