OH11: No standing in father’s cell phones even when communicating with defense experts

Defendant is charged with killing his wife. He didn’t have standing to challenge a search warrant for his father’s cell phones where attorney-client privilege in their contents was asserted because the father was communicating with expert witnesses in his case. State v. Cunningham, 2021-Ohio-4052, 2021 Ohio App. LEXIS 3943 (11th Dist. Nov. 15, 2021).

Defendant claimed a lack of consent and not understanding the consent form, but the questions he asked of the officer afterward showed that he did. United States v. Roberson, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 219620 (D.D.C. Nov. 15, 2021).*

The protective patdown of defendant’s person was based on reasonable suspicion. United States v. Teter, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 219488 (M.D.Pa. Nov. 12, 2021).*

Tossing aside a suitcase when confronted by officers was an abandonment. United States v. Grantz, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 33826 (4th Cir. Nov. 15, 2021).*
