CA9: Denying owner access to an impounded car for 30 days is an unreasonable seizure

Denying access to one’s car for 30 days after impoundment without justification was an unreasonable seizure under the Fourth Amendment. Untalan v. Stanley, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 4070 (9th Cir. Feb. 22, 2023).

CI information led to surveillance then two controlled buys. That was probable cause. State v. Stevens, 2023 Del. Super. LEXIS 82 (Feb. 20, 2023).*

Information from a CI was that defendant was going to get more drugs for his customers. That was still reasonable suspicion on the totality without specifics of where he was going. Commonwealth v. Knupp, 2023 PA Super 28, 2023 Pa. Super. LEXIS 63 (Feb. 22, 2023).*

Defense counsel wasn’t ineffective for not filing a motion to suppress where it would never have been granted. Mitchell v. State, 2023 Ga. App. LEXIS 92 (Feb. 22, 2023).*
