NJ: Refusal of a frisk without RS does not add to RS

There was no reasonable suspicion for defendant’s stop. People who live in a “high crime area” do not have lesser constitutional protection. The facts here just didn’t support a frisk, and he had a right to refuse one, and that couldn’t add to reasonable suspicion. State v. Goldsmith, 2022 N.J. LEXIS 572 (July 5, 2022).

The good faith exception does not apply where there was a Fourth Amendment violation and its product was submitted to the magistrate. United States v. Mott, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 117324 (N.D.W.Va. May 27, 2022).

The NYPD 911 dispatcher put out a call about an assailant with a particular description from a 911 call. Arriving a couple of minutes later, a small group was seen and defendant matched the description. That was reasonable suspicion. United States v. Martinez, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 117345 (S.D.N.Y. June 30, 2022).*
