CA9: “Clearly established law” in one sentence

“Cardenas has not identified any case holding that police officers violated the Fourth Amendment by making an arrest under similar circumstances, and we are not aware of any such case.” Cardenas v. Saladen, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 5091 (9th Cir. Mar. 2, 2023).

Defense counsel wasn’t ineffective for not challenging defendant’s stop for speeding 130 mph. State v. Tatum, 2023-Ohio-629 (5th Dist. March 1, 2023).*

One officer wrote the search warrant affidavit off information provided by others with actual knowledge. There were some minor mistakes. “Defendant has not shown Detective Spencer included the inaccuracy in the search warrant affidavit recklessly or intentionally. Second, Defendant has not shown that the Government would lack probable cause if all inaccuracies were excised from affidavit.” United States v. Smoot, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 34604 (S.D. Ohio Mar. 1, 2023).*
