E.D.Ky.: Def shows nothing to support claim taint team violated attorney-client privilege in review after SW

Defendant argued that the execution of this search warrant resulted in disclosure of attorney-client privileged information because of alleged misuse of a taint team. But, he provides no context or anything to go on. Taint teams are recognized in such situation. United States v. Taylor, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 188060 (E.D. Ky. Oct. 13, 2022).

After a traffic stop at a gas station, the officer diverted to investigate suspicious activity at the gas station and not the traffic stop. This violated the Fourth Amendment. State v. Fish, 2022 Ga. App. LEXIS 479 (Oct. 13, 2022).

Plaintiff’s § 1983 case against his state search fails both under Heck v. Humphrey and on the merits. He was on home detention in lieu of jail, and any searches could be without warrants but upon probable cause which “[t]hey unquestionably” had. He also consented. Johnson v. Piper, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 188112 (W.D. Ky. Oct. 13, 2022).*

The officers had a “fair probability” that drugs would be in defendant’s car supporting a search under the automobile exception. United States v. Haworth, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 28586 (6th Cir. Oct. 13, 2022).*
