CA9: Govt proved inevitable discovery of victims despite suppressing search of motel room

The officers’ investigation had progressed enough to have embarked on a course to readily identify defendant’s victims before the illegal search of the motel room. The government proved inevitable discovery. In addition, this wasn’t so flagrant, despite the granting of a motion to suppress the search of the motel room that dismissal of the indictment was warranted. United States v. Cano, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 26237 (9th Cir. Aug. 31, 2021).

Smell of marijuana justifies prolonging traffic stop and ultimately a search. United States v. Langley, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 164750 (W.D.Okla. Aug. 31, 2021).*

Where this Fourth Amendment § 1983 complaint was untimely, the court did not have to resolve the service issues. Ajayi v. District of Columbia, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 164611 (D.D.C. Aug. 31, 2021).*

“[T]he district court correctly instructed the jury that under California law, finding for Defendants on Rosier’s Fourth Amendment excessive force claim would necessarily yield the same result for his negligence claim.” Rosier v. City of Huntington Beach, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 26235 (9th Cir. Aug 31, 2021).*
