LA2: Anonymous report of man with a gun without some other possible crime is not RS

An anonymous tip that a man had a gun wasn’t reasonable suspicion. There was no report of any crime being committed at the time. State v. McCall, 2024 La. App. LEXIS 27 (La. App. 2 Cir. Jan. 10, 2024).

Defendant challenges his stop on pretext grounds. The credibility questions are all resolved in favor of the officer, and the challenge is denied. United States v. Boykins, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 4377 (W.D. Okla. Jan. 9, 2024).*

Seeing and smelling marijuana on a man on the street was probable cause for his stop and search. United States v. Stepney, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 4459 (S.D. Ohio Jan. 9, 2024).*

The court seeks supplemental briefing on this alleged Franks violation. United States v. Hazelett, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 4508 (E.D. Mich. Jan. 9, 2024).*
