D.Nev.: Def can’t be conclusory attempting to show standing in a rented vehicle

Conclusory statement of standing in a rented vehicle fails without some proof. “Defendant’s expectation of privacy rests on his contention that he rented the Taurus on Turo and lacked knowledge of the possibly stolen character of the vehicle. But if Defendant relies on a lack of knowledge to establish a reasonable expectation of privacy in the Taurus, he bears the burden of proof on such facts.” United States v. Thomas, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 197727 (D. Nev. Nov. 3, 2023).

The government seized defendant’s cell phone but waited nine months to get a search warrant to search it. Motion to suppress granted for the delay. United States v. Martinez, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 197629 (D. Ariz. Nov. 3, 2023).

The application under the SCA for records and information about defendant’s cell phone records complied with the law at the time. United States v. Miske, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 197693 (D. Haw. Nov. 3, 2023).*
