D.D.C.: Hot pursuit of man with gun into apt was reasonable; and it wasn’t his apt

Defendant didn’t have standing to contest a warrantless entry into his close friend’s apartment when he was hiding there from the police after having fled an apparent arrest. They were also in hot pursuit of a man with a gun. United States v. Robinson, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 123513 (D. D.C. July 1, 2021).

Defendant characterizes the bathroom search as having to be a protective sweep, but the court finds consent to search it. In addition, there was probable cause for the ultimate search warrant. United States v. Molina, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 123214 (E.D. Ky. July 1, 2021).*

Defendant’s 2255 characterized defense counsel as not understanding the reasonable suspicion argument and it was lacking. She did understand it, and there was reasonable suspicion. United States v. Scott, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 19723 (5th Cir. July 1, 2021).*
