CA9: State’s seeking CSLI with PC but under wrong statute not 4A violation

Probable cause was shown for CSLI before the state judge, but the state sought the order under the wrong statute. That doesn’t violate the Fourth Amendment. United States v. Fregia, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 32587 (9th Cir. Nov. 2, 2021).

Defendant did not own the car on which the state placed a GPS by court order, so he didn’t have standing.State v. Lane, 2021-NCCOA-593, 2021 N.C. App. LEXIS 604 (Nov. 2, 2021).

Picking apart the affidavit, the court of appeals finds no probable cause at all for a belief that drugs would be found in defendant’s house. State v. Eddings, 2021-NCCOA-590, 2021 N.C. App. LEXIS 596 (Nov. 2, 2021).*

Defendant’s traffic stop was reasonable even if it was pretextual. United States v. Scieneaux, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210616 (M.D.La. Nov. 1, 2021).*
