M.D.Pa.: CSLI tracking by state court order was reasonable under federal law despite alleged state law violation

Defendant’s cell phone location information search was reasonable and constitutional under federal law despite an alleged violation of state law. United States v. Coles, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 143548 (M.D.Pa. Aug. 2, 2021).

There was probable cause for the search warrant for defendant’s house from controlled buys with a CI. After each, defendant went back to his place, creating an inference more drugs would be there. State v. Collins, 2021 Conn. App. LEXIS 264 (Aug. 3, 2021).*

Officers conducting a welfare check on a car in a Waffle House parking lot with the engine running for two hours woke the driver (not the passenger) and got him out to check on him. In plain view was a gun. That reasonably led to a further search. United States v. Greene, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 22671 (6th Cir. July 29, 2021).*
