MA: Where state CSLI rule was retroactive, obtaining def’s here was harmless error

Defendant’s CSLI was obtained in 2011 in violation of the state constitution [well before Carpenter and state cases]. It is retroactive in this state. But, all things considered, it was harmless byond a reasonable doubt. Commonwealth v. Gumkowski, 2021 Mass. LEXIS 284 (May 4, 2021).

This probationer’s probation search was without reasonable suspicion and didn’t comply with P&P regulations. State v. Irwin, 2021 Del. Super. LEXIS 373 (Apr. 30, 2021).*

Where the U.S. government didn’t have possession of defendant’s funds, it couldn’t be ordered to return them. United States v. Sheppard, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 84230 (W.D. Ky. May 3, 2021).

The search warrants here for defendants were issued on “substantial probable cause” and were particular. United States v. Skinner, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 84377 (E.D. Va. Mar. 10, 2021).*
