W.D.Pa.: Generic motion to suppress denied

Defendant’s general motion to suppress is denied. United States v. Knox, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 72716 (W.D. Pa. Apr. 15, 2021).

“In short, when viewing this evidence in the light most favorable to appellant, reasonable minds could only conclude that the force used by Trooper Doebrich in arresting appellant under the facts and circumstances of this case was reasonable and not excessive. Therefore, we find the trial court did not err by granting OSHP’s motion for summary judgment pursuant to Civ.R. 56(C) and dismissing appellant’s action. Accordingly, we overrule appellant’s sole assignment of error.” Pankey v. Ohio State Highway Patrol, 2021-Ohio-1317, 2021 Ohio App. LEXIS 1284 (10th Cir. Apr. 15, 2021).*

Defendant didn’t properly move to suppress but the case is remanded for other reasons, and he’ll get to do it again. Green v. Commonwealth, 2021 Va. LEXIS 36 (Apr. 15, 2021) (interesting dissent).*
