NY Bronx: REP in one’s apartment building mailbox

Defendant had a reasonable expectation of privacy in his mailbox in an apartment building from unreasonable searches. A search warrant was sought through the Bronx DA, but they were short staffed and recommended the officers get landlord consent. That was invalid. People v. Washington, 2022 NY Slip Op 50473(U), 2022 N.Y. Misc. LEXIS 2503 (Bronx Co. May 4, 2022) (unpublished).

The affidavit was not so lacking in indicia of probable cause that it could not be relied on in good faith. United States v. Mitchell, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 103022 (M.D.Ala. May 27, 2022)

2255 petition for ineffective assistance of counsel on a search and seizure claim fails for failure to allege anything showing that a motion to suppress would have been granted; no facts, no legal theory. United States v. Martinez, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 103102 (S.D.Tex. June 9, 2022).*

The fourth in a series of false arrest cases from the Waco Twin Peaks shootout is Walker v. Stroman, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 15927 (5th Cir. June 9, 2022).* See also Terwilliger v. Reyna, 4 F.4th 270 (5th Cir. 2021);* Wilson v. Stroman, 33 F.4th 202 (5th Cir. 2022);* Redding v. Swanton, No. 20-50769 (5th Cir. Apr. 29, 2022).*
