MD: Tracking “court order” didn’t need to be called a “warrant” to be one

A “court order” for tracking defendant’s vehicle satisfied the warrant requirement, and it didn’t have to be called a search warrant. It was issued with probable cause, and the good faith exception applied. Whittington v. State, 2021 Md. LEXIS 255 (June 2, 2021).

A wiretap warrant issued and executed in Kings County had jurisdiction even if the cell phones had traveled or were outside of NYS. People v. Schneider, 2021 NY Slip Op 03486, 2021 N.Y. LEXIS 973 (June 3, 2021).

Defendant’s failure to come to a complete stop justified his traffic stop, and that supported the plain view of a gun in the door visible when it was opened. United States v. Gallman, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 104107 (E.D. Pa. June 3, 2021).*
