CA8: PC shown but for nexus, but GFE overcame that

The district court held the affidavit for the search warrant didn’t say enough to supply nexus to defendant’s home, but the good faith exception applied. Affirmed. The affidavit was sufficient for probable cause defendant was involved in dealing drugs, and that satisfied the good faith exception. United States v. Randle, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 18406 (8th Cir. July 5, 2022).

There was probable cause for defendants’ detention. For all appearances, there was a meth lab going on, and the landlord discovered it and reported it. United States v. Landa-Duerta, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 117209 (N.D. Ga. June 15, 2022).*

Defense counsel wasn’t ineffective for not seeking the name of a CI that led to a search warrant that became the case. It was futile and would have been denied. There was probable cause for the warrant for a house and safe deposit boxes. The codefendant’s motion to suppress on same issues was denied. State v. Mumford, 2022 Del. Super. LEXIS 275 (June 30, 2022).*
