W.D.Wash.: Seizure of cell phone incident to arrest not invalid because it preceded actual arrest

Seizure of defendant’s cell phone incident to arrest wasn’t unreasonable just because it was seized before the arrest. United States v. Garg, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 183140 (W.D. Wash. Oct. 11, 2023).

An extraneous name appearing in a warrant affidavit was influentially ignored by the trial court as a scrivener’s error. The finding that probable cause existed to take blood includes the ability to test it. Longoria v. State, 2023 Tex. App. LEXIS 7783 (Tex. App. – Corpus Christi-Edinburg Oct. 12, 2023).*

The fact defendant consented to probation searches doesn’t eliminate the requirement the PO still have reasonable grounds for it. City of Olmsted Twp. v. Donnelly, 2023-Ohio-3712 (8th Dist. Oct. 12, 2023).*
