MI: Anonymous tip for def’s stop was uncorroborated and unreasonable

The officer stopping defendant’s vehicle lacked reasonable suspicion that defendant was engaged in criminal activity based on an anonymous tip. Even assuming that the tipster was reliable led only to the conclusion that defendant appeared to be obnoxious and was yelling at her children in a parking lot, as there were no details in the record to corroborate the tipster’s mere assertion that defendant was drunk. People v. Pagano, 2021 Mich. LEXIS 640 (Apr. 22, 2021).

Petitioner’s successive 2255 was a rehash of his prior denied Fourth Amendment claim but now as a Franks challenge. Dismissed because it’s not based on a new rule of constitutional law. In re Garrett, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 12057 (11th Cir. Apr. 22, 2021).*

Defendant’s waiver of probable cause for a probation search was unambiguous. State v. Ellis, 2021 Ind. LEXIS 241 (Apr. 23, 2021).*
