TX finally approves of anticipatory warrants

Texas high court finally approves of anticipatory warrants. Parker v. State, 2022 Tex. Crim. App. LEXIS 470 (July 27, 2022).

On his motion for reconsideration, defendant’s Franks challenge still fails. There’s probable cause without the challenged information. “Courts long have recognized that ‘motions for reconsideration should be granted sparingly and may not be used to rehash arguments which have already been briefed by the parties and decided by the Court.’ … Here, Defendant continues to argue issues that have been fully briefed and argued extensively. The Court already has decided those issues, and Defendant’s disagreement with the Court’s ruling is not a ground for reconsideration.” United States v. Rogers, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 132569 (W.D. Pa. July 26, 2022).*

Defense counsel wasn’t ineffective for not challenging the search warrant here because there was clearly probable cause. Smith v. United States, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 132429 (M.D. Tenn. July 25, 2022).*
