ND: Reasonableness under Heien supported even though erroneous conclusion traffic offense occurred

Whether failure to signal while exiting a roundabout is a traffic offense is a valid reason for a stop or not, it was reasonable for the officer to conclude it was, and that justifies the stop under Heien. City of Lincoln v. Schuler, 2021 ND 123, 2021 N.D. LEXIS 125 (July 8, 2021).

Government’s response to motion to suppress that it does not plan to use the evidence found at trial moots the motion. United States v. Barnaby, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 128442 (E.D. N.Y. July 8, 2021).*

Two day old information about defendant at a motel wasn’t stale. The CI provided probable cause, and the good faith exception applies. United States v. Key, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 128565 (S.D. Ga. July 9, 2021).*

The officer’s testimony about a traffic offense justifying defendant’s stop is not credited, and neither is his alleged probable cause to search on smell of or seeing marijuana. State v. Cornelius, 2021 Del. Super. LEXIS 501 (July 8, 2021).*
