W.D.Ark.: Officer acting outside his local jurisdiction isn’t 4A issue

“Mr. van Leeuwen also claims that Boone County officers were without jurisdiction when they arrested him in his Marion County home, in alleged violation of Arkansas Code § 14-15-501. However, ‘[a] police violation of state law does not establish a Fourth Amendment violation.’ United States v. Baker, 16 F.3d 854, 856 n.1 (8th Cir. 1994). This means that even if Defendants were outside their jurisdiction when they arrested Mr. van Leeuwen, they did not violate his Fourth Amendment rights.” Van Leeuwen v. Roberson, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 53744 (W.D. Ark. Mar. 22, 2021).

Police obtaining CLSI information pre-Carpenter was valid. French v. State, 2021 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 103 (Mar. 23, 2021).*

Police reasonably relied upon consent with one with apparent authority to consent. Commonwealth v. Rosario, 2021 Pa. Super. LEXIS 157 (Mar. 23, 2021).*
