D.Conn.: Flight from the police with abandonment of stuff obviates the need to decide RS for the stop

Defendant’s flight from the police and abandonment of items in flight was not while he was “seized.” Thus, the need to decide reasonable suspicion for a stop is obviated. United States v. Sockwell, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 215294 (D.Conn. Nov. 8, 2021).

Defendant’s jail phone call to a friend to remove the gun from his car before the police got a search warrant for it supported his conviction for both possession of the firearm and tampering with evidence. State v. Camacho, 2021-Ohio-3975, 2021 Ohio App. LEXIS 3873 (11th Dist. Nov. 8, 2021).

Defendant was subjected to a parole search without cause. Review denied. Concurrence: No argument is advanced under the state constitution that reasonable suspicion standard should apply. People v. Montgomery, 2021 Mich. LEXIS 2032 (Nov. 5, 2021).*
