S.D.N.Y.: Emailing SW materials subject to protective order results in contempt conviction

Defendant’s emailing a reporter search warrant materials subject to a protective order results in his conviction for contempt. Defendant understood the order, and only defense counsel was able to use the materials, not him. He was later pro se but not when it was emailed. United States v. Schulte, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 218220 (S.D.N.Y. Nov. 9, 2021).

The officer had probable cause to stop defendant despite the claim of pretext. State v. Harris, 2021-Ohio-4007, 2021 Ohio App. LEXIS 3891 (5th Dist. Nov. 9, 2021).*

The officers’ encounter with defendant in an apartment building parking lot was consensual as it started. United States v. Taylor, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 217702 (D.S.C. Nov. 10, 2021).*
