S.D.Ohio: Officer’s reading a note during consent entry violated scope of consent

Defendant consented to an entry but the officer’s reading a note exceeded the scope of consent. That made the later search warrant based on that void. United States v. Genco, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 21055 (S.D.Ohio Feb. 7, 2022).

The plaintiff student’s strip search in front of a window was without justification, and defendants get no qualified immunity. T.R. v. Lamar County Bd. of Educ., 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 3318 (11th Cir. Feb. 4, 2022).

The court credits the officer’s testimony that the defendant came up behind his patrol car putting on his seatbelt. Driving without a seatbelt justified the stop. Then the officer smelled marijuana in defendant’s car. United States v. Andrew, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 21060 (S.D.Fla. Jan. 19, 2022).*
