CA6: Allegedly misrepresenting purpose of entry here had no bearing on use of deadly force once inside

Whether the officer lawfully entered the house by misrepresenting his purpose has nothing to do with the objectively justifiable use of deadly force inside. Sawyer v. City of Soddy Daisy, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 3108 (6th Cir. Feb. 7, 2023).

Officers came up on defendant asleep in his car and saw pills in his lap. The officer thought they were xanax. That was probable cause. Commonwealth v. Dotson, 2023 Va. App. LEXIS 84 (Feb. 7, 2023).*

Defense counsel was not ineffective for not moving to suppress where the motion would have been denied on the merits. Gonzales v. State, 2023 Ark. App. 39, 2023 Ark. App. LEXIS 54 (Feb. 8, 2023).*
