D.P.R.: Def waived his Franks by providing nothing to show what’s what

“Although Defendant suggests that a Franks-like challenge was made during the suppression hearings in the Puerto Rico state court, he fails to develop any type of Franks argument in this case. Indeed, Defendant does not provide copies of the search warrant and affidavit in support thereof in any of his briefings. Accordingly, Defendant has failed to raise a Franks challenge.” United States v. Marin-Rodríguez, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 80722 (D.P.R. Apr. 29, 2024).

Plaintiff waived his Fourth Amendment and other claims by not raising them in his opening appellate brief. Crandall v. Newaygo Cty., 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 10784 (6th Cir. May 1, 2024).*

Stone v. Powell requires only that the accused has the opportunity to litigate the search issue, not that he actually did. Archuleta v. Covello, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 80589 (N.D. Cal. May 2, 2024).*
