CA10: No REP against officer running an LPN

There is no reasonable expectation of privacy in a license plate number. Officers can run any LPN number. They can also walk up to his car in his driveway and look at it. Becerra v. City of Albuquerque, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 29608 (10th Cir. Nov. 7, 2023).

Carpenter wasn’t the law when 2254 petitioner’s direct appeal was decided, so controlling SCOTUS caselaw wasn’t misapplied. Still, Stone applies, and he had a full and fair opportunity to keep litigating the issue. Jiles v. Kirkpatrick, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 199059 (W.D.N.Y. Nov. 6, 2023).*

One year was not stale in a child pornography case. United States v. Holland, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 29585 (11th Cir. Nov. 7, 2023).*

Officers parked their patrol car and were on foot patrol in a seriously high crime area and saw three young men working on a motorbike. As they approached, one could see the unmistakable “L” shape of a gun in the pocket of one. That led to a legitimate encounter. United States v. Terry, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 199374 (E.D. Va. Nov. 3, 2023).*
