E.D.Wis.: Citing forfeiture seizure statute in SW application and warrant doesn’t require forfeiture, too

The government sought a search warrant under Rule 41 and also cited the forfeiture seizure statute, 18 U.S.C. § 983. Failure to seek forfeiture doesn’t void the search. United States v. Palma, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 137870 (E.D.Wis. May 27, 2021).

Defendant’s short stop at a house the police had been surveilling and were in the process of getting a search warrant for it was reasonable suspicion. United States v. Clayton, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 21954 (6th Cir. July 23, 2021).

Officers came to defendant’s hotel room with reasonable suspicion of theft. When he opened the door, evidence was seen in plain view, and reaching across the threshold to grab him was reasonable. State v. Stands, 2021 ND 135, 2021 N.D. LEXIS 133 (July 22, 2021).

“[T]he Government notes Berryhill fails to point to any Fourth Amendment violation that would have supported a motion to suppress on the conspiracy charge or how the failure to file a motion to suppress prejudiced him.” Berryhill v. United States, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 137801 (S.D.Ga. July 23, 2021).*
