CA5: Franks civil case pleads enough to overcome QI

Plaintiff showed sufficient facts to support a § 1983 Franks claim for false statements supporting probable cause for arrest. Franks is clearly established law. Hughes v. Garcia, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 10922 (5th Cir. May 3, 2024).

“Based upon our review of the record submitted on appeal, we agree with the trial court’s well-reasoned and thorough order that the affidavit supporting the search warrant did not contain any material omissions or misrepresentations that rendered the warrant invalid.” State v. Chaney, 2024 N.H. LEXIS 83 (May 3, 2024).*

Defendant’s Franks challenge is tenuous at best and fails. The CI’s information here was sufficient to show probable cause within the lengthy and detailed affidavit for warrant. United States v. Overton, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 80955 (W.D. Pa. May 3, 2024).*
