D.Neb.: CI report led to controlled buy and that was PC

A CI with a reliable track record reported defendant was selling ecstacy. That alone was likely at least reasonable suspicion, but then police used him to make a controlled buy, and that was probable cause for the stop. United States v. Crawford, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 76557 (D. Neb. Mar. 30, 2021).*

CJA counsel ably and exhaustively litigated defendant’s suppression motion for a dog sniff for two days. She was not ineffective, and the outcome would not have been different. Davis v. United States, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 76766 (D.S.C. Apr. 21, 2021).*

Summary judgment was properly granted the deputy here because no force was used against the plaintiff until she reached behind her back toward her waistband which the deputy reasonably perceived was going for a weapon. Batyukova v. Doege, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 11778 (5th Cir. Apr. 21, 2021).*
