D.Conn.: CI was personally involved in info he provided, and he was further corroborated by an unrelated wiretap

The CI here was untested for prior reliability, but the information was detailed and had the CI’s personal involvement. Moreover, an unrelated wiretap provided some corroboration of the CI’s involvement. This probable cause finding is not a close call. If it was, the good faith exception would also apply. United States v. De La Cruz, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 3337 (D.Conn. Jan. 7, 2022).*

The district court’s Franks rulings are not clear error. They are itemized and rejected. United States v. Desu, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 465 (3d Cir. Jan. 7, 2022).*

There was reasonable suspicion that defendant had an arrest warrant under an alias, and that justified the encounter and a frisk. There was probable cause for the later state search warrant for his car. United States v. Rushing, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 502 (9th Cir. Jan. 7, 2022).*
