Omitted information about the CI doesn’t support this Franks challenge. United States v. Williams, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 80117 (W.D. Pa. May 2, 2024).*

The tracking order for defendant’s cell phone was issued with probable cause despite the lack of knowledge whether this person carried the phone to drug deals. [The common knowledge that drug dealers and couriers use cell phones regularly in their deals goes a long way.] United States v. Santos-Hunter, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 80112 (D. Minn. May 2, 2024).*

In a state filed § 1983 case, plaintiff’s complaint only alleged a seizure, with no facts that it was legal or not. Motion to dismiss properly granted. Markunas v. Vill. of Lake Delton, 2024 Wisc. App. LEXIS 364 (May 2, 2024).*
