NY2: Def stated IAC claim that defense counsel never looked at SW materials

Defendant stated a claim for ineffective assistance of counsel that defense counsel never obtained the search warrant materials to even investigate. Reversed to have the state produce it. People v. Tindley, 2022 NY Slip Op 00886, 2022 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 856 (2d Dept. Feb. 9, 2022).

“When the Defendant saw the lights from Officer Bishop’s vehicle, he fled from the police by reversing the vehicle at a high rate of speed. In doing so, he crashed the vehicle and damaged a street sign. He then opened the door of the vehicle and ran away. At that point, he forfeited any reasonable expectation of privacy in the vehicle.” United States v. Sullay, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23028 (D.Mass. Feb. 9, 2022).*

Defendant’s Franks challenge doesn’t undermine the probable cause. United States v. Trujillo, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23040 (D.N.M. Feb. 9, 2022).*
