OH10: Odor of MJ from car didn’t justify search of driver’s person

The odor of marijuana coming from a car and not a specific person in the car doesn’t justify search of defendant’s person. State v. Oliver, 2023-Ohio-1550, 2023 Ohio App. LEXIS 1545 (10th Dist. May 9, 2023).

Defendant waived his search claim by pleading guilty and he can’t appeal it anyway. Watkins v. State, 2023 Miss. App. LEXIS 177 (May 9, 2023).*

Defendant’s Fourth Amendment post-conviction claim failed on the merits because the search was reasonable. Cammon v. United States, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 11192 (6th Cir. May 5, 2023).*

Petitioner’s 2254 Fourth Amendment fails because there was a full and fair opportunity to litigate in state court. Martin v. Gittere, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 79711 (D. Nev. May 8, 2023).*
