CO: Typo in date (9/9 v. 9/30) in SW affidavit could be overlooked by other contents referring to previous few hours; GFE also applies

The typographical error in the affidavit showing the date as September 9th when it should have been September 30th could be overlooked because the affidavit as a whole referred to the previous few hours, and the good faith exception applies. People v. Grudznske, 2023 COA 36, 2023 Colo. App. LEXIS 614 (Apr. 27, 2023).

Most of the search warrant papers remain sealed. “Upon careful consideration of that thorough submission, and also upon a close independent review of the requested Sealed Materials, it is clear that the countervailing factors described above are sufficiently compelling to outweigh the strong presumption of public access to certain portions of the documents at issue. To protect both highly sensitive law enforcement practices and the privacy of third parties, some degree of continued sealing is necessary.” United States v. Mullins, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 74008 (S.D.N.Y. Apr. 26, 2023).*

There was reasonable suspicion for the state probation search here. United States v. Gaston, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 74217 (N.D. Iowa Apr. 28, 2023).*
